If you want to know the best places to hang out and talk, ask a kid. He’ll give you a dead-pan look and say, “C’mon, Mom. The playground at recess! Duh.” And you’ll have to agree, it was a pretty obvious answer. So today we’re gathering at the local playground. Only this one isn’t “old school” like we’re all used to – with the cool swings, the teeter-totter, and the merry-go-round that you’d sit on and your friend would spin so fast that you’d fly off and land ten feet away, covered in sand. No, today, we’re going to one of the new “safe” playgrounds, where the mommies will all give us the stink-eye because none of us have kids with us. So, you know, we MUST have an evil intent. (sorry, my Free Range is showing. pausing to adjust)
So pull up an environmentally-safe, cushioned piece of recycled rubber or a wood chip and have a seat. Join the conversation and tell us what you’re up to. And if you’re mean, we’ll go old school on you and bury you up to your neck in that environmentally sound padding that’s underneath all this ‘equipment’.
