Seriously. What the hell happened to all the swings?
My Da says that “they” have been removing swings from schoolyards because of “all the injuries”. And I said, “you’re full of shite.”
And he said, “no. Seriously. ‘They’ are afraid of lawsuits.”
And I said “that’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. Next they’ll be only building play structures a foot off the ground so that little jimmy won’t fall and hurt his widdle foot.”
And my Da said, “wouldn’t surprise me.”
I don’t believe it. I mean, I don’t *want* to believe it, and so I choose not to. Who would be stupid enough to remove swings from playgrounds…SWINGS…which have been around since the DAWN OF TIME…because some kid might get hurt? Kids get hurt crossing the street all the time; are we going to get rid of streets too?
