No Hit Clips. That was a big disappointment. Part of a tiny train set, a Bug’s Life wind-up toy that only wanted to go backwards and part of larger toy-the cool airplane part. Headlines about Clinton and Columbine, the Broncos and the horoscope. And precious letters written to a little boy in kindergarten who is clearly loved and cherished by his family. There was also some amazing art work, including a self-portrait of which you can be the judge.
But it was fun to watch it be opened up, the hot glue pried off with a pocket knife and all the anticipation that green and purple painted can held. We’ll never know where those Hit Clips went, but he’ll always have a moment in time of his life at five years old.
