S1 had made a kite in school and wanted very much to try it out. So, off we went to a nearby park.
"The kite's good," he told me, "but my son is not interested. I saw your son playing with a kite earlier, so it's yours if you want it."
Have I ever turned down something free? "Thanks," I told him and promptly went over to see if I could get the kite up. It was a little weighted on one side, but nothing that looping the tail over the neck couldn't fix.
