Recently Elijah was playing quietly with his Thomas train set in his room. The train set includes a small bridge that is two track pieces long and supported by a pylon designed to shore up the two track pieces where they meet. It's a simple design, but it's effective, albeit somewhat limited.
Elijah decided that two track pieces does not a decent bridge make. He had put up with this tiny bridge for too long. Today was the the day that he would branch out and build bigger and better things.
Three track pieces is the way of the future, after all. However, without additional pylons, what's a boy to do?
I always suspected he was an ideas man.
