A young man with dark shaggy hair and long arms and a thin frame wheels the cart around with several identical 8 foot long boxes helped by an older man, his father, who shares the same thin frame and dark hair. He helps his son lift the boxes. They are silent and concentrating. The young man’s bright yellow shirt with West Virginia paints a picture of where he is heading, his freshman dorm where he’ll unpack the wooden slats that will become his bed frame, another that makes a book shelf, another a couple desk chairs, everything he’ll need to start the year off just right.
How many boxes fresh off the factory press can you fit in that bigger box? And more importantly, why?
