Cadence, do you see it?
That one grain of sand that hasn’t fallen yet.
Oh yeah. Here let me tap the glass to make it fall.
No! Leave it. That means that time is standing still.
Time is standing still? Does that mean we can do whatever we want for as long as we want but no time is passing?
Yeah, that’s what it means.
Cool, we can go away for like a year and when we get back nothing changed.
Well, that’s if no one finds the hourglass. If someone finds it and the last grain falls, we’ll be in trouble for getting home late.
So, what should we do?
Let’s wait and see if it’s going to fall.
That could take forever!
