“Growing Up Is Hard”
It looks like the little boys are playing on the school playground. The two boys are making believe that they are fighting. They would not hurt one another, they’re smiling at each other. Or was the older boy behind them making fun of them, and they were just showing off when he did this. The older boy who is bending down could be saying, “Oh you don’t know how to fight”. Then the younger boys said, “we’ll show you”, so they took their fighting positions. This took place in the summer and it looks like they were standing on sand. I think there are some dead dandelions or tumbleweed in the sand. The boys who are fighting, their names are Ike and Mike. Ike is on the left and Mike is on the right. There is an old saying that goes,“Ike & Mike they’re just alike”. The older boy bending down, his nickname is “Trouble”, that is because he is always in the ready position to fight. The little boy in the back, his name is Freddie. The boys knew one another, they could be brothers. Their mom and dad might be in the buildings behind the playground, it is probably an apartment building. Their mom and dad told them to go outside and play. There were no adults in the area and they don’t know what the boys are doing. The older boy in back of the boys fighting, picked up some sand and he is either going to throw the sand or give it to one of the boys to use. I think that when the fight ends, Ike will win. Ike and Mike will learn something when the fight ends, and I think the brothers are going to grow up with a mind of their own and be able to deal with a situation. The older brother “Trouble” will grow up to be a Truck Driver, so that he can control things, and Ike and Mike will follow in their brothers footsteps, as they also need to have control.
