Some children, it seems, belong to secret societies. Their approaches to life suggest membership in good standing with the Future Tinkerers of America, Mini-Mechanics Guild or Tiny Troubleshooters Union. Curiosity leads these children into taking action, and taking apart perfectly good appliances to find the secret buttons or where the wires connect.
Not me. As a child, I assumed every gear and gadget had its right place and right to be undisturbed. Who was I to strip away all the magic and see how one thing led to another?
