Carter Answers Your Questions about Playground Equipment
Question submitted by Cousin George:
Erik: "What do you like to play with at the park?"
Erik: "What else?"
Carter: "No-NUH-nuh-no just... swing."
Erik: "Just swing? Anything else?"
Erik: "No slides, you don't like playing with the slides?"
Carter: "'cause they dangerous."
Erik: "They're dangerous? Slides are dangerous? Why?
Carter: "'cause I can't go in them 'cause they big."
Erik: "They're big. Is there anything else dangerous at the park?"
Carter: "Nuh-nuh-NUH-nuh-nuh-nuh-no... the swing and the merry-go-round broked."
For clarification, Carter IS allowed to use the slide at the park. Of late, he has decided that many things are "dangerous," though we don't really know why. At one of his parks the merry-go-round is broken, and he fell of a swing at another (the second swing at that park was broken as well). But, there are several nice parks with modern equipment that Carter frequents in addition to many dilapidated ones scattered about the city (mentioned in an earlier post).
