The center of attention

As I stood bouncing Tornado A on my hip, talking to the other moms, Tornado E was let out of the class.  One of the last because he didn’t hear his name called.  Twice.  He pulled out of his backpack a plastic tube and held it aloft, like Excalibur.

Tornado E: WHO WANTS TO PLAY WITH MY HEX BUG?!!!!!

Immediately 16 five-year-olds and two three-year-olds are swarming around Tornado E, yelling, “ME, ME, ME!”

Then off Tornado E raced with the pack behind him.  Off went my merry wanderer of the day to lead them all on a merry chase over hill, over dale, thorough brush, thorough brier, over park, over pale, thorough flood, thorough fire.

Well, at least, they’re getting all that energy out.

    Yeah, where do they get all that energy from…I suspect they’re sucking it from us as we sleep.

    I still don’t even know what a Hex Bug is. I’ve seen them at Target but they didn’t look fun. Are they?

    They are fun! Like cockroaches.
