Last weekend I had to run some errands. As I was leaving my apartment I saw a boy re-staining one of the fences that divides my complex and the one just north of us. It was a blazing hot day and he looked like he just started. I took about one second to feel bad for him and then I just laughed, thinking about Tom Sawyer.
A few hours later I came back. This time I saw this boy kicking it back in the shade with an apple and about four other boys re-staining the fence.
I'm not even kidding.
