Our neighborhood has these great cobbled sidewalks.
The stones are not super well fitted, so they clink and clank together romantically.
Until it gets sleety and wet. Then those voids fill with cold water, and some of your steps push the stones into the water, and the water squooshes up through the cracks, squirting a foot or more in the air. It is reminiscent of stepping over a clam hole at the beach and getting squirted. Except of course, that it is freezing cold out, and now your jeans, socks and shoes are soaked 🙂
