Who did you play with as a child?
To hear my mother tell it, I would much rather be sitting with my nose stuck in a book than play when I was a kid. I have a younger sister, so I suppose we played together, but once she started school, I think she played more with her friends. My brother is significantly younger than me, so I played with him when he was a baby, but by the time he was in school, I was busy doing my own thing.
My friend Lynn (who I've written about before) lived 6 houses down from me, and we spent almost every waking moment together. Well, when I wasn't reading, that is. ;-) Luckily, Lynn was a big geek like me, so she didn't mind sitting together with our books. We took a lot of trips to the library together. We'd walk or ride our bikes there at least once a week. Sometimes, especially if it was a rainy day, we'd make homemade play dough. Usually we would just make it, then give it to my younger brother and sister to play with. Yeah, we were cool like that.
