When the fur on the top of Sister's head gets a severe cutting to get rid of a tangle of burrs, she can't wait for it to grow back. But it seems to be taking forever to grow, just like the seed she planted for science class at school. She tries to be patient on both fronts, but waiting is just too hard to do. That is until Gramps shares a story about how he too found it hard to be patient when he was young, and discovered the secret to being patient is finding something to occupy the time - to take your mind off what you're waiting for.
