    β€œWhen I was little and we still lived in Flushing, the Whip used to come shambling down our block, a hectic fanfare blowing from its loudspeaker horn. The Whip was a truck with a carnival ride in a wire cage mounted on its flatbed, painted red and yellow like a circus tent. The music that attended its migrations and advertised its arrival had a slapstick wooziness and in hindsight may have been a tarantella. It seemed as long and as looming as a tractor-trailer to me, but it was probably no bigger than a moving van. If you were already in the street playing when the Whip rolled up, you ran in to beg for a quarter. If you were indoors, you heard the drunken music and ran out to meet it with a quarter sweating against your palm.
    The Whip Man was a beefy dark-skinned fellow in a billed cap who said little and smiled less, although he did not seem unfriendly. He would relieve you of your change and then help you up three steel stairs to the interior of the cage where the Whip’s six cars waited, alternately red or yellow, arranged on on a hidden track in an elongated oval. Sometimes the cars reminded me of tulips and sometimes of painted hands upturned to cup a pair of children. The cars wobbled around the oval, trundling along the straightaways, then picking up speed at each end in a burst that smashed you against the outside of the car or the person beside you. During the slow parts you recovered, and then you got smashed again, and when the ride was over you went back down the stairs. Just before you exited his cage, the Whip Man would reach up to take a piece of Bazooka bubble gum from a shelf over his head and press it into your hand with a murmured benediction.” --Chapter 32, #Moonglow. #fbf [Google Earth boyhood home h/t: @sharonchabon]

    I feel like people would SAY "oh, a metal kiddie cage wouldn't be as well received nowadays" with a knowing skepticism, a finalized judgment about the faceless operators who were OBVIOUSLY only there to scout participants for a watch fencing ring. But in reality I bet it would be just the same- children whose hearts quicken at the first times of the seizure-inducing music...the quarter replaced by a dollar, the bazooka gum replaced by a laffy taffy. But everything else...the same. Also, this totally and happily reminds me of the Simpsons episode where a gravel truck is made into a mobile pool.
