Child Watches, Child Learns

I was sitting on the upper deck of the tram on my way to a friend’s place earlier today. It was raining heavily and it was a pleasure to hear the pattering outside, but my attention was drawn towards the very front. A very agitated kid of around 18 was standing in front of his seat and seemed to be in a trance - he would glance at his watch, then peer outside the window and then look back at his watch over and over again.
