This particular story was originally written on July 6th of this year, during the second of our contractual giveback of four paid days to the state. The inspiration for the story was based on an incident at the local playground in the summer of 2008, and which I elaborated on about a year later.
This story is the only piece of creative non-fiction that you will find on the other blog, and is one of only two creative non-fiction stories in the 389 total blog posts (both published and unpublished on all three blogs) that you will find here. If you get the feeling during the reading of this story that there's some anger bubbling under the surface, you would be pretty much correct in that assumption.
No two paragraph lead in this time, just the customary link that brings you to it. Feel free to leave a comment either here or over there.
