Run, Rubberman and jump. Spring off the tree-tops and dance on the electric poles, Bounce off the wires-

That was my long-car-journey game, when I'm relegated to the back-seat, without any say in the choice of music. The Rubberman, who can run along with the car, as fast as my eyes could dart across the road-side posts. He is an acrobat and escape artist, a Houdini-meets-the-trapeze. He would perform for me on the electric poles, or on the trees, the buildings, jumping on and off the cars and trucks like Jackie Chan.
