Crimson’s Creative Challenge Challenge – When I was Young.

I’ve done stupid things in my life you know.

You?

Yes, it’s hard to believe I know. When I was young and my hormones were raging.

You have a list of them?

Oh yes, I was once in love with Gus Low. He lived on the farm next door. He had his own plane and all that. I was young and fickle and so I decided to show Gus how much I thought of him. We had an old cart and with our our draught horse, Nelly, we scoured our creeks finding stones to create a love heart. I built it on top of Sugarloaf Hill where I knew Gus would be flying over.

How did it go? Was Gus impressed?

I’ve no idea. Dad made me return the rocks, said I was using up valuable grazing land, so that was the end of that.

I would have been impressed if I saw it.

No, you wouldn’t, you’ve hardly a romantic bone in your body.
