Here's my entry for this week's Illustration Friday theme: Suspend. This was a fun memory from elementary school. Every recess we would run out to the monkey bars and play the game of "chicken" until some kid lost an eye. I remember the bars being red hot from the sun and that most of the time kids would give up from their hands burning before the kicking could even start. One of the techniques we would use would be to get a fist full of sand and rub our hands together to really rough 'em up and give us extra grip on the bars. Good times. I bet more people would be involved in presidential debates if this is how they were handled.
