Children At Play

All the fifth graders knew that if you were looking for a no-nonsense game of  wiffle ball, there was only one place to go.  Todd’s house on Maple Avenue – the one next to the “Children at Play” sign.  Obviously.

Only the most badass kids in elementary school got to enjoy a “Children at Play” sign and the freedom that comes with it.  Want to organize a killer game of roller hockey?  No problem.  Cars will have to take the long way home.  Government says so.  Just check the sign.

How do parents go about getting one of these signs?  Did someone blow a councilman?   And which councilman, specifically?  Not that I’m personally interested.  But in case someone asks me, I could tell them, you know, without having to ask you again.
