Date: Thu, 26 May 1994 00:18:44 -0500 From: Nancy Harwood Subject: Re: Red Rover Don's comment about rule books for recess games makes sense...that would explain why so many of us remember pretty similar games. Recess used to be fun...unless, of course, you had done something bad and had to "walk the walk" (walking back and forth on the sidewalk from the front of the building to the side, without talking to anyone) or "stand up" (a punishment reserved for more serious had to stand up against the side wall of the school building and not talk to anybody.) These punishments worked pretty welL at keeping juvenile behavior in line, at least with goody two-shoes types like me; I remember the only time I had to "stand up" at recess, I was terrified the whole time that my mother would pass the school and see me...and I knew I would be in terrible trouble then! -----Nancy Harwood----------------------------------------------------------- harwood[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] News is *not* more important than breakfast.
