Innovate and create

MSU News - June 29, 2016 - 2:14pm
Ah summer. It's my favorite time of the year, even though I don't have the entire season off like when I was a kid. I remember being outside from daybreak until the streets lights came on, and sometimes even after. We used to ride our bikes and pretend we were cars. Blue bikes got to be police; a wagon tied to another was an ambulance. And then there was the peculiar ice cream truck. Why in the world was a turned-over tricycle that we pedaled with our arms an ice cream truck? We'd spin the tires and pretend ice cream was coming out of them. Despite the fact that it looked nothing like our favorite Good Humor Man vehicle, to us, it was an ice cream truck. I have no idea why, but I know I'm not the only one who did this. Other adults have told me they did the same thing, though it really makes no sense at all. But, it didn't matter us - it was an ice cream truck, plain and simple. I like to think our childish minds were simply being innovative. Back in the day we used all sorts of things in ways they weren't intended. Books covered with a tissue became a doll bed. A wadded up sweatshirt became home plate. An old box served as a spaceship, or a house, or any number of things. Our young minds simply took things we had and turned them into things we wanted.
