Velcro. It sticks to everything when you are a child. The only day your school shoes actually ever have velcro that works effectively is the day before they are ever worn.

Your velcro tells so many stories…of playgrounds, trees, school floors, lego building, tantrums, food dropped, running, falling, getting up again, green grass, sand, socks being pulled away when caught on the velcro straps.

I love you Velcro….you are the essence of childhood.
