those kids toys cause me weird emotions. i was never really allowed to go on them as a kid and so they grew to be mythical in status. until i finally went on one and realised how boring they are.

then for a few years i worked in a café in a park in Sheffield and one of my duties was rolling out this sit on kids toy down three massive steps out on to the path. it had a really sinister tune which became even more depressing as each time it played it meant someone had put another 20 pence in to the machine.

and each 20 pence meant the machine was more heavy to drag back up the steps at the end of an exhausting day.

i genuinely loved working in that greasy spoon café but that bit was a bit tough for a weedy 18 year old like me at the time.
