It’s even more magical than I remembered!
Sure, Doctor, I had a great childhood! I did all the usual stuff. Why do you ask?
It’s just a routine question we ask in therapy, Blog Guy. What is your very best memory of your early childhood back in Indianapolis?
Good, Blog Guy. Now close your eyes and tell me more about Lamar’s. What do you see?
Gosh, I see the dazzling neon lights, the merry-go-round, the ferris wheel, the calliope, the cotton candy, the clowns, the….the…
The what, Blog Guy?
The swing! I see Lamar’s Swingtastic Adventure! It was a shiny white swing on wheels, the very best ride. Lamar himself would be there to greet the kids and push us in the thing, up into the sky. Nothing could top that!
Blog Guy, I have here an actual old photograph of Lamar’s Swingtastic Adventure….
Uh-oh. This therapy is going to take some time, isn’t it, Doctor?
