Recipe For Failure Narrative
My first memory that I remember is when I messed up. I was around four years old when I tried to be cool and follow in my brother’s footsteps. My brother Dustin and I were riding bikes outside doing tricks and having fun. He would do a trick and I would try and copy him.

The setting is in Rice Lake, WI during the wintertime, out in my backyard, on the lake. I remember family members and family friends coming over to watch a Super Bowl featuring the Packers vs. another team, but I can’t remember the name of the other team.
