Don't waste time. Start procrastinating now.

We passed through the tall white gate and into the yard. It was a beautiful summer day. The lawn was green and lush, like the grass on a golf course. My older cousin Emily got down on the ground on her elbows and knees. I got on her back in the same position. My younger cousin Isaac stood on Emily’s back and tried to climb up onto mine. For once, he succeeded.

My cousins and I called this our “human pyramid”. We thought it to be very amusing, though to an onlooker it just appeared silly and uncouth.

As soon as Isaac was steady, I became unsteady. I wobbled and fell to the grass. Isaac tumbled backward.

“Nice going, Amanda,” Emily said jokingly.

We laughed and tried to attempt another human pyramid.

This probably sounds really dumb to you, but it is a good, funny memory I have. My cousins and I were quite strange.
