This ball on the bench is prickly like a lot of people.
Say or do something that rubs them the wrong way and you got a sharp aching thorn in your side.
Hence the saying about handling them with “kid gloves” made from fine soft kid leather.
Handle tactfully and with special consideration or else get stung badly and suffer the pain and consequences. 😉

I really had to take a second look at this.
From a distance, it looked like another homeless person sleeping on the bench in Washington., D.C.
But as I got closer, I realized this was a statue of a homeless person.
And the only thing real about it was the empty cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee next to it.
Honestly, I am not sure what the point of this statue is.
There are enough REAL homeless people to remind us of their serious plight and the critical need to help them.
The money that went into creating this monument would’ve been far better spent on helping these real people in need. 😉
