This is a story of bravery and triumph! Conquering the scariest ride on the playground: The Slide. This is loosely based on my own experience with a tall yellow slide on my kindergarten’s playground.

I was too scared to climb it for a long time. When I finally built up the courage to climb to the top though, I ended up climbing back down, too scared to slide down it after all – that happened a couple of times, if I remember correctly.

In the end, I did climb to the top AND slide back down. The slide then became my favorite ride, and I understood why it always had the longest line. Yadda, yadda, yadda, I now love roller-coasters. It’s just the next logical progression, I guess. I may do a longer version at some point, but for now, here’s a one-pager.
