We were at the park the other day watching some kids doing three-legged races. They didn’t tie the kids’ legs together, they just put one leg of each kid in a burlap bag, and had them hold onto the sack.
After the usual falls and whatnot, some kids won; and as the contestants who had finished were wandering back to their families, we saw one little boy and an older girl who were still fairly near the starting place. They fell, and struggled up. The little boy was pulling the sack back on to keep going; but the girl had apparently had enough, as she ripped off the sack and turned back. He followed her, but you could tell he wasn’t happy about it.
You go, kid. Never say die.
