Hopefully this brings back some fun old memories... Memories of sweat, mud, dirt, annoying little pieces of matter stuck in your shoes that always break your concentration. Yes, those were and still are (sometimes) the days.
About this creation
The ten year old child named Austin Bogut, we'll just call him Austin, peeps out from behind a bush on a creek delta.
Suddenly, he jumps out.
He looks right,
then left. He seems to be rather secretive.
Then, assuring himself that no one is around, he breaks straight ahead.
Now, we see what he is running to. A giant, blue flag.
Little does Austin know, that thirteen-year-old Garrett is hiding just out of sight, behind the other side of the hill, smirking to himself.
He hears Austin coming, and his smirk grows wider. Austin still runs with enthusiasm.
"Almost there!" Austin thought.
Then, all of a sudden, out jumps Garrett!
Austin immediately turns around, for he knew better than to mess with a kid with a utility belt.
But Garrett has a head start, and longer legs, and gains steadily on Austin.
"Aaahhh!" yells Austin.
"I've got you, kid!" bellows Garrett.
"Tag!" He shouts.
Then Garrett simply turns around and walks back to his hiding place, leaving Austin dejected.
Austin sits down. "I was so close." he thought.
Then, along comes me! I run heroically across the rotted plank.
I notice Austin. "He must have got himself caught, as careless as he is."
Austin hears me. "Hey!" He shouts. I keep running.
Then I look up. Garrett is running towards me.
Then everything goes into slow motion.
I bend down, and I can smell the awful smell of sweat on Garrett's hat.
Then I jump!
Thrown off balance by his rush, Garrett falls off the hill, and Austin watches him fall. I reach for the flag.
I grab it.
Tahdah! Just like mario!
I reach down to pluck the flag. Austin has been watching awestruck this whole time.
I shake the flag victoriously.
Then I check out Garrett. "I am only taking your flag for a little walk, okay?" Garrett moans. "I take that as a yes." As I trot off.
I rush for home base, leaving Austin with Garrett.
