Bud and I played trucks last weekend.
That probably sounds like no big deal. But it is. It's a big deal.
Bud and I have never really played trucks before. He has carried trucks around before. He has made the Bob the Builder character trucks act out scenes from videos. He has occassionally spent time standing at the top of the driveway with a truck and letting go, watching it roll slowly, slowly toward the street until it stopped, then retrieving it and starting over. And over. And over.
But in the mosquito-filled dusk of last Friday night, Bud and I raced trucks down the driveway - "Ready, set... GO!" We used chalk to measure how far the trucks could travel. The Oswald characters drove a dump truck down the street to go buy cards for their friends. Trucks made mechanical vroom-vroom noises. Trucks crashed into each other. Trucks crashed into trees.
We just played trucks.
