scene from a vacation, with children
October 7, 2007
Did you know that in Boston people get their newspapers delivered to their doorsteps, folded up and secured with an elastic band? And it would seem that people pick up their newspapers and then discard the elastic band on the sidewalk.
See those two smiling little boys on the right in the photo? They fought to the death over every single elastic band that they found on the sidewalk. And then wore them up their arms like tribal bracelets. Because apparently we do not have elastic bands in Connecticut.
Think I am kidding? Here is my 6 yr old drooling over a box of elastic bands in the aquarium ticket office and plotting how he can possibly make them all his.
The next most highly coveted treasure we picked up on our trip… a piece of a broken stoplight. And yes, we did bring it home with us. Why wouldn’t we?
