On a walk today I saw a boy around 10 years old. His mother had probably told him to stop playing video games and get out of the house for fifteen goddamn minutes, so he was aimlessly wandering around his driveway.

He found a stick and began to stab a snowbank with it. Bored at first, he genuinely got interested when he realized how much the stick could bend without breaking, and he took it into his hands and began to flex and release it to observe its springiness. Watching him, I became fascinated by the springiness of sticks, too.
