A Very Nodin Adventure
So he empties a cylindrical, clear plastic container of blocks - odd shapes, of varying colors, that can interlock - and some time is spent knocking them together and against other toys with halfhearted excitement. (Our protagonist has been going for a few hours so far today, and whether he knows it or not, is tired.) Shortly thereafter, he loses interest in the blocks and turns his attention to the container itself, ripping out the identifying paper label/insert and attempting to eat it. Said insert is taken away before this can happen, and the observer notes that a halfhearted attempt is made to retrieve it. Next, an attempt is made to place the lid on top of the container, an extremely determined and prolonged one, aborted when the need for a diaper change becomes clear.
