146/365 square peg into a round hole

Daily Shoot: Lose the rectangle today. Make a photograph with a square (1:1) aspect ratio and post it. Crop if needed.

 

Today's assignment instantly reminded me of this old children's toy. I can remember our daughter eagerly playing with this wooden box when she was small. She kept patiently trying to work out which peg fitted into which hole. And what a sense of achievement every time she managed to get one in. It soon got too boring, though, when she had memorized it all.

 

What about the square peg students in schools that only offer round holes? Or teachers, for that matter, who themselves don't fit in the accepted moulds? Will the squares be forced to round their edges, or will holes of varying shapes and sizes be allowed?
