Sprung Slinky

My wife and I went to a "Holiday" dinner with a group of my clients tonight, leaving the kids at home with a babysitter.

When I got home, I found that my second son had left something for me on the kitchen table:


In case you can't see it clearly, the note reads: "Try to fix. Don't throw away." I got a big smile out of this, since it reflects such a simple, childlike faith that I can fix anything. Too bad that's not the case...

I don't know, but I used to be pretty good at untangling those things. It might be able to be fixed.

What did they do to get it in that condition, anyway?

No, it can't be salvaged; some parts of it are bent (not just twisted or tangled). Good question on how it got twisted.

Ah. Clearly, the dog's to blame.

Secretly replace it with one of those star or square shaped ones and really boost your reputation!
