U Can't Touch This

There is a nest in our living room. To the untrained eye, it might not look like a nest. It might look like just a bunch of scrunched up pieces of scrap paper. It might, in fact, look like someone haphazardly emptied their wastepaper basket in the middle of our living room floor. Someone who doesn't recycle their paper products that is. That's what it looked like to me at least, until my son told me it was a nest, and that not only was it a nest, but one of the scrunched up pieces of paper was a refrigerator, and one piece was an oven, and that, "everything you need," was in there.
Then little brother came into the living room and ruined the nest. It was hard to tell it was ruined, it still looked like scrunched up pieces of paper carelessly assembled in the living room, but I could tell by the crying - it was ruined.
