My Truck My truck got me into a lot of trouble. I had a lot of trouble with my brother. He took my cars and trucks to play with when ever he could. Apparently he thought the green truck was as fascinating as I did. He loved to play with my green truck as much as I did. This was the truck that he took a lot. That green pick-up truck got me into some fights with my brother and caused the trouble I got into. Playing with my truck also lead to trouble with my mother. I had hundreds of blocks set up around my room as roads. I didn’t see it as a big problem. But, when my mom comes in to vacuum, she has to remove my blocks. I Hated This!!! Now, six yeard laterI can see her point; my room would not get vacuumed for month at a time. I would come home from school and find my room clean and vacuumed!! When I saw what had happened to my blocks I got mad, I wouldn’t eat dinner that night. The next time I refused to let her move them and I got into a lot of tantrums over this. My mom tried to draw the positioning of the blocks onto graph paper, so she could put them back later, but it did not work out. The trucks and the blocks just continued to get me into trouble.
My windows would be open in the summer, we didn’t have air conditioning, and it was very windy. My door would slam in the night. The rest of the family would not get any sleep. So, my mom came in to close the windows a little and she would kick over my blocks and cars. In the morning, I woke up ot see how muck damage was done. My blocks were skattered, and some times my little plastic micro machine cars would me broken. If you know about to toy cars, once the axle is bent from being stepped on, or being turned, the wheels don’t turn. But not my green pick up truck. It was made of metal and had very strong axles. I would make roads with my wooden blocks and scoot cars on top of the roads. I also had some stop signs that I would place where the roads would meet. I had a cut-out piece of blue felt that I used as a lake. Now, when you have a lot of cars that you set up on roads that go all of the way around your room, you can only move one or two cars at a time. The car that I played with the most was my truck.
