Arsh Chopra Blisters The birds chirped as I woke up on another warm, summer day in the middle of July. I looked out my window and saw the park, my favorite park, in the distance across the flat land of Ames, Iowa. Just then, my mother came into my room. “Are you ready for breakfast?” she questioned. “Just a second,” was my reply. “I’ll come down as soon as I’m dressed.” As soon as my mother had left the room, I swiftly got dressed and took my trip downstairs, where I found toast and bacon awaiting me. I ate furiously, eager to get to the living room so I could begin my usual routine of Saturday morning cartoons. At the age of seven, this was common among other children my age I gazed into the television as my favorite shows started to play… That’s all folks! The words flashed upon the television screen after I had spent an hour watching cartoons. Looking at the clock, I saw with my newly acquired skill of reading it, that the time was 11: 00 AM. That meant that I still had about an hour before lunch do whatever I pleased. “Today I’m gonna do it,” I thought to myself, “Today I’m gonna cross those monkey bars.” I looked down at my hands.
