1000 paper cranes

My 17-year-old stepson, Frizz, is intent on folding 1,000 paper cranes.  This means there are paper cranes of all sizes showing up all around the house, increasing in numbers day by day.  The first day was cute.  He carefully placed a large crane on our dinner table, followed by cranes decreasing in size – like a little paper crane train.  Then a few more appeared in the living room, folded in bright construction paper.  Soon the little train on the table grew to include their extended family.

Every day Frizz has continued his folding adventure at his desk in his room.  And I wonder two things – what the heck are we going to do with 1,000 paper cranes, and when is the kid going to get a girlfriend?

  1. I was at this stage once at 16. Wished love forever with my first crush. Didn’t come true, but I enjoyed the process. 🙂

    1. Oh my goodness, I wonder if that’s why he’s doing it too? 🙂 It might just be because he has such a love for Japanese culture, but perhaps he is doing it for love of a girl too.
