King of the Castle

Once again an old photograph dredges up memories long hidden. Strewn atop our kitchen table in Leaf Rapids are several plastic Roman soldiers and the pieces of their castle. Oddly, my strongest memory is the feeling of pulling the red tops off the towers and pushing them back into place again; it was pleasant to discover how the toy fit together. I don't remember the chariot at all, but clearly it's the coolest piece in the set. Perhaps the tactile sensation of assembling and disassembling the castle helped my brain retain the memory of those pieces, while the less interactive chariot is lost to history.
