This was a writing exercise I came up with. Think of something completely mundane and write an essay about it. This essay is first about safety pins, but then I mixed in paper clips as well. Thoughts are more than welcome.
It's heritage month at my (John) son Stephen's school. This means that he needs to talk to one of his relatives about where our family comes from. And since my grandfather (or "Gramps") is still alive, that means that we all took a trip out to see him. The school gave him a list of questions to ask. I've included the transcript below.
