Child Ruins Monks' Intricate Sand Design

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (May 24) - The little boy spotted the pretty pile of colored sand on the floor of the vast hall and couldn't resist. Slipping under a protective rope, he danced all over the sand, ruining the carefully crafted picture.

"He did a little tap dance on it, completely destroying it," said Lama Chuck Stanford, of the Rime Buddhist Center in Kansas City.

LOL. That has to be the funniest thing I've read in awhile. Apparently the little boy slipped away from his mother, tucked under a security rope and went to tap dancing all over the sand portrait. LOL.

It's really not his fault. I mean, what do you expect from a toddler? It was big. It was pretty. It was colorful. And in his mind of course that meant you had to dance all over it. Lol. I blame his momma. You don't let your toddler wonder in Union Station and not expect something bad to happen. Toddlers destroy things. It's what they do. They're like little wrecking balls, ready to demolish something at a moment's notice, whether it needs demolishing or not. LOL.

And how did the monks react to all of this? Well, like you'd expect Tibetan Monks to respond, with complete and utter calm:

"No problem," Geshe Lobsang Sumdup, leader of the group from the Drepung Gomang Monastery in southern India, said through a translator. "We didn't get despondent. We have three days more. So we will have to work harder."

Nice. We all could learn a little something from such a, "it's all good" attitude.
