    Pretending With Peg Legs

    This started even earlier, but when I was about 10 years old I built myself a peg leg. I would fold up my right leg inside my pants and walk around on it. After I became proficient at it, I thought one day "what if a one legged man had an accident, and lost his other leg? If he...
