Detail from Comic #780.
It felt good, letting it free. It nested just fine inside, but it was heavy, and the prominences jabbed him when he walked, so he preferred to sit. It was heavy enough that he sat a lot, rather than carry it around all the time. When it sounded, it was loud and jarring and a little bit painful, but it was good too, like peeling off a scab, or cracking a difficult joint. Stretching too far — too far — and then release. The quarter was just a bonus.
