ymcacamppiomingo.org LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 3.17 11 Illustration by Kendall Regan powder as we walked to the edge of our football field of a backyard to break the sheet of ice in our horse's water trough. Mary Chellis Austin Deputy editor I was about three or four when I got my first tricycle for Christmas, and I remem- ber thinking I could go so fast on it and it was magical. Then one day our waterman — we had a cistern and had to have water delivered — ran over my beloved tricycle. I can actually remember thinking that I would never go that fast again. Lindsay Flint Advertising production coordinator I stand in my crib in the morning holler- ing to get out. My older sister, Karen, responds. She can't be more than five or six. She pulls over my doll highchair made of some lightweight metal and painted dusty blue. I swing my leg over the side of the crib and place a foot onto the high- chair seat, shifting my weight onto it. The highchair legs buckle and bend. I pitch down to the floor. I cry because my doll highchair is bent over like an old man. Jenni Laidman Writer at large I vividly remember screaming, crying and totally losing my mind when I was a young girl because my parents dared to start the car and begin to drive before I had the opportunity to get my seatbelt latched. Apparently my parents put the fear of certain death and/or dismember- ment in me to ensure that I would always wear my seatbelt. I still recall the panic I felt. Mandy Wood Advertising account executive I remember being at my grandparents' house in Florida and running around in purple pants. Don't ask me why I remem- ber the purple pants! Megan Vogt Circulation and office manager I'm on my new tricycle, which has dad- made wood blocks added to the pedals, on a very hot day. I can hear the sound of cicadas and a coal boat unloading its car- go down at the harborside power plant. I try to turn on the sidewalk and the trike tips over and I can't get it back up again.
