There is a playground at Leeman Field, and on this playground there is a swing.  And because playgrounds in general and swings in particular are hazardous, there is a safety harness for this swing.  It is all the way across town, stored in the Mayor’s Office.  You can call the mayor.  His phone number is nearby.  Maybe he will bring the harness to the playground for you.  Then you can swing safely.  Maybe the mayor will even push you for a while, before he takes his safety harness back to his office.  That would be fun.
