Reliving my childhood - Part 1

Today Betu was singing the lines which took me to 20 yrs in the past. It reminded me of the game we used to play.

The lines were -
"I wrote a letter to my father
On the way I dropped it.
Someone came and picked it up
And put it in his pocket...pocket...pocket!"

Now you remember the game?

For those who couldn't, it was a game played in group where 2 people would stand face to face, join hands in the shape of a bridge and others would take a circle around them and go under the bridge. And these two people would trap a person after saying the word "pocket" third time. And then that 'captured' person would go and stand behind any of these two players. And it would end with a tug of war.

Now you remember?

Singing this along with my son after so many years felt so very wonderful. I know I will have many more of such moments and that's why I have made a series out of it :)

Any similar incident you can think of?
