Police vs Thieves


Looking through the window at work, I saw two squirrels on a fence chasing each other on this cloudy day. This incident evoked my nostalgia about a game I used to play with my classmates in elementary school which was known at that time as,”police and thieves.” Girls would be in one group which was called police and boys would be in another group and it was labeled as thieves.

The whole game was based on an idea that police chase the thieves during lunch break, catch them, and put them in a prison. Once a police person touches or taps a thief, that the thief person would be out of the game. I was the fastest “thief” in my group and police girls would leave until I was the last one in the game, and then the police would design a trap to catch me.

Old Memories!
