    I was walking home from work today near a park when I saw a young man trying to pick up big egg shaped boulder. The boulder was an ornament in a flower garden and was far to heavy for the guy. Although I had no idea what he was doing, I started to go over to see if he wanted some help, but as I walked, he changed strategy and started to roll the rock.

    I watched as he rolled it across the park and stopped in front of a stone bench. He then sat down on the bench and put his feet on the rock.

    A lot of work for a foot stool.

    The young guy asked me not to take his photo but I sat with him and chatted for awhile. I asked him why he put so much efforet into making a foot stool and he replied.

    "It looked comfortable."

    After he left, I tried it out.

    He was right, it was comfortable.
