Pop and the Kids

Character Analysis

The kids like to walk, they like to talk, and they like to hop on their pop. Pop, on the other hand? He’s not such a big fan of the hopping. Sure, he’s got all that fluff in the middle, but internal organs can be fragile all the same.

The lesson of this bite-sized narrative is pretty simple but important nonetheless. You can and should do the things you enjoy, but you should consider the feelings, and spleens, of others as well.
