      The “grasshopper” is a description of the boy; children are so interesting in that they can go from complete caterwauling cartwheeling chaos to standing still staring into space in a matter of seconds. πŸ™‚

    I agree with Nanka, I don’t know of grasshoppers standing still, but I guess the could. As long as you don’t bother them….

      I guess they could, too. I tried to make it clear that I wasn’t talking about a grasshopper, but was using it as an adjective to describe the flurried activity of the boy.
