“What’s that?” I asked grandpa as we were walking in the park enjoying the sun.
“What does it look to you?”
“It’s a big wheel.”
“You’re right. Always remember to trust your instinct.”
He continued that it was a hangover from the time of the giants long before politicians took over and made a mess of everything.
Fast forward twenty years. I was in the same park with my six-year-old daughter when she pointed at the familiar landmark.
“What can that be?”
“What do you think?”
“It’s a giant clock.”
“Sweetheart, you’re so smart. You must have taken after me.”
