In my memory, playing the shuttlecock game was one of my favorite things during my childhood. The shuttlecocks I played were not used for playing badminton game; they were just used for playing by themselves.
My hometown is in northeast China where the winter is very long—almost five to six months. Playing the shuttlecock outside was the main game in the winter. Because I liked to play this kind of game very much, the shuttlecock became my good friend who always accompanied me in the long winter.
