    Anticipation, fear, and mischief crept upon Chad in equal measure as he readied his designer wooden bicycle for the race. He stared at the megaphone. So tantalizingly close. Fantasy and a semblance of a plan began to merge into an amorphous yet pointed desire. Yes, today would be the day. Today, Chad would ride the wind as a modern day miniature Poncharello. And if he could only steal that megaphone, he had the perfect siren to pull all of those sexy ladies over.

      With his partner-in-crime literally asleep at the wheel, Chad knew he had to be fast. Gary loved his green stripes, but he loved sleep more.
      “The four-year old in the green onesie is a known wild card,” he reasoned.
      “If I can get a head start, she’ll make sure all hell breaks loose.”
      Chad knew that place too well. He wasn’t going back there. The incessant screaming and crying. The forced naps.
      The damned sing-alongs. Kindergarten was a place to grow old and die. It was a place that sucked the life out of you. You know who likes kindergarten? Phonies. The bear didn’t go over the mountain to see what he could see. He went over the mountain to see another mountain because life is about new experiences, new challenges, and sweet, delicious liberty.

      Chad looked at the megaphone. He knew he had to act and act fast.
