Piling OnSubmitted by Bryant & Brannock on April 15th, 2022
When we were kids, we played a game…well, it wasn’t actually a game, it was just a thing we did, where someone would shout out “Dog Pile” and someone else would jump on the ground and then everyone else would start piling on top of them. Laughing bodies stacked on top of laughing bodies. As the number of bodies started to pile up, it became a lot less fun for those on the bottom of the pile, and eventually the laughter became a little bit manic and the person on the very bottom would scream for everyone else to get off. The bodies would quickly unstack themselves amidst a lot of pushing and pulling and, inevitably, we were back on our feet and ready for the next game. Looking back, it is a wonder we survived our childhoods.
