Written for the 2011 TS Secret Santa "Drabble Days Extravaganza"; the prompt was "sleigh or sled". (Extravaganza is for entries that are past the target date and/or over the 500-word limit.) I never had a sled as a child – snow too irregular and inadequate where we lived. I searched the 'Net to find wheels-conversion kits for kids' sleds; someone must have had that bright idea, right? Wrong; as Blair said, "conversion" plus "sled" showed only kits for snowmobiles. So a story that I had planned to show Blair making his own because he couldn't afford the real thing, became a story about Blair inventing something that really should exist. Maybe there's a little frustrated sledder in all of us.
