Chucky? Is that you?Ha! I did the same thing, with a one speed pedal bike. And because Evel would jump lines of cars I decided i needed something to jump so out came an old wagon (radio flyer type with those removable wooded fence looking sides). My mother, from the kitchen window, watched me go off the ramp a couple times but shut it down when the wagon came out, that was probably a good thing. I was 11 at the time, too bad it took 40 years for me to start riding.
Nah, Chucky did this at 6 years old. Only it wasn't a wagon.
We had learned how to ride bikes and we were making little ramps everywhere.
Chucky and I were dumpster divers. I still have a scar from when I found a book of matches. Ah, good times. I digress.
We lived in a pretty crappy area. It was a neighborhood that got split with a freeway.
Anyhow, the garbage would be interesting stuff as people got evicted and their belongings dumped by the dumpster.
One day when we were riding our bikes, Chucky grabbed an old crib from the pile and put a board against it as a ramp.
He took off on his one-speed. It was too big for him but he rode it a lot.
He got to the ramp, lost all forward momentum and the front wheel went off the ramp and into the crib.
Naturally he did a header, trying to crack the concrete with his face. The concrete laughed at hi as he spewed, and I mean SPEWED, the red juice from his golden nugget cave. His face became nothing but blood in an instant.
As six year olds, we knew the best of first aid. This consisted of finding something fabric to "stop the blood".
Off to the garbage pile I went, looking for something cloth-like. I found a box and something cloth inside.
I handed it to him and he immediately put it to his face to block the waterfall, er, bloodfall that had formed.
It wasn't even until we were in his apartment that anyone realized he had an old bra cup completely covering his 6 year old face.
His mom was cool She said "I just hope all the blood on this thing is yours". Honestly, it might not have been.
We once found a bloody butcher knife in that dumpster.
