most often takes place in the winter
time at the end
of a nice patch
. Since everyone
is sliding on the ice one
right after the other, if one kid slip
s and fall
s, those behind
him will fall on top
of him and then all the other young boys
add to the pile
I've been informed that before my time--when racism
was much less an issue--this was often the name
of the game.
An ugly variation
of the game that was play
ed in my residence. When it was someone's birthday
a mattress would be thrown to the floor
and a bunch
of 18 to 20 year-old boys throw the birthday boy
on the mattress
and all jump on top of him.
Needless to say, I did my time in residence
and now proudly live on my own.
