Developments, part III

(VW Golf Harlequin)

Back in the day when I was a kid, coloring was all the rage. We were all required to have a full set of pencil-crayons for school, so that we could do all the assignments that mandated making rainbows of provincial borders.

As the years progress, and as one learns the true value of pencil crayons, they become quite the commodity. Those that had them reveled (well, not quite), those that didn't, borrowed, and those that didn't borrow, stole. Thankfully, one innovative grade-school teacher came up with the idea of 'collateral', so the integrity of those willing to share was ultimately preserved.
