I enjoyed this unique analogy. Sometimes it is those object lessons that get through to our kids where all the reasoning in the world won't.

You've perfectly described a nine year old "making holes for the sake of making holes" and your explanation is perfect, "When you're nine, you can do stuff like that." :) I like how you've written this, especially with your description of canyons and this particular bridge… I could see it from your writing.

Convincing, engaging, and realistic dialogue. Great metaphor.
I enjoyed the dialogue in this piece. Very realistic. Thank you for sharing this.
I wonder if this is a true memory or fiction. Either way, it's a strong, real story.
