Recess Mystery

Yesterday, we had a quieter recess because of lunchroom behavior. The kids were supposed to sit and read. We were in the younger kids’ playground area, because there was a nice ledge to sit on there.

While I walked back and forth enforcing silence, I noticed some unusual stains on the asphalt.



The stains looked kind of like rust. And they didn’t have a visible origin. It’s like they were coming from nowhere. Or maybe not. Could these stains be coming from under the asphalt? I was really fascinated. I took several pictures. Some of the kids saw me, so I had to explain what I was looking at. I don’t think they thought it was as interesting as I did.

A straight line...

A straight line…

It looks like the picture above could possibly be the location of a pipe. Maybe the pipe is leaking and rusting, and it’s coming through the pavement? How could the kids not think this is interesting?

    That whole area of pavement looks ominous. Something is finding its way out!!

    Dang it. Now I’m going to wonder about those stains all day.

    (Nice shoes, by the way.)
