In these dark days, we were forced to use our imagination to create our own adventures. My brother and I would collect as many random house items, anything from wooden spoons to shoe laces was fair game, in hopes of constructing a complicated course through which we could allow a marble to roll on it's own with minimal assistance. If we succeeded there was much rejoicing and the prerequisite high five. If the marble didn't make it, we would of course blame it on each other and storm off to play on our own."
