Not the shiny one in Chicago.
Haven’t got a photo of it yet.
The kids first noticed it when one stepped on its seed pod.
It was squishy.
My adventurous son brought it over to the picnic shelter and started dissecting it.
When I saw the bean that came out of the seed pod, I recognized it from my childhood in Easton, Maryland.
I’m still not sure.
“Horse chestnut” came to mind after a while, but when I Google the term, the seed does not look like it comes in a bean pod.
It’s a castor bean.
When you rub them on the sidewalk, they retain heat from the friction.
Then, you can torture a classmate by touching them with the hot bean.
At least, the kids doing the touching thought so.
