after saving the world in a marathon effort, you are on your way back home and you see another such truck parked, your best friend playing furiously. no way you‘re missing this, two heads are better than one & a quick pitstop won’t hurt
time’s a ticking & work is beckoning, so you grab a few minutes of playtime like you’d grab a quick bite at your favorite hot dog stand & make a run back to the boardroom where the meeting to decide the fate of mankind awaits your presence
you take a closer look & you see a dart board, an unfolding ping pong 🏓 table, yo-yos 🪀 hanging around, a tiny trampoline by the side, balloons dancing above, heaps of play dough, jigsaw puzzles, lego bricks 🧱 & doodles on the walls
imagine a truck parked round the corner. bright, colorful, lit up like a xmas tree, peppy music thumping, a joyous face shouting thru the window ‘come one, come all, come play & take a trip down memory lane!’ do i have your attention now?
whenever you think of a food truck or ice cream van, your mouth waters & heart flutters. food has that effect & the truck entices you to indulge everytime you see it. now replace food with play & your favorite dish with your favorite game!

what if we’re cast as the side role in the hero's journey?
does it matter if we’re main or supporting characters? even if we’re actually cast in the main role, does our perception change the narrative?
