As many times as I've driven past this park, I've never seen more than a handful of kids playing.

Hop on, Susu, I'll give you a push.

It strikes me as odd that there are so few children at the playground. There must be a million of the li'l crumb crunchers at restaurants where every single one of them, seemingly, is busy dropping pennies into a tin cup one-at-a-time! PLUNK! Plink! PLUNK! PLUNK!
