While walking along the street, do kids jump up and touch street signs anymore?

As a teen, I recall doing that all the time around the neighborhood.


Whether it was a ‘No Parking’ sign on a street lamppost or a store awning on ninth avenue, we were always jumping up trying to touch things. We always had a competition; to see who could jump the highest. Some kids got up higher than others.

My vertical wasn’t that high but I was always trying to jump as high as possible to hit something.
