Patrick: Hi, do you mind if I sit on this bench with you?

Mary: No, be my guest. We’ve just moved to the neighborhood and we love having a playground around the corner.

Patrick: It’s nice, isn’t it, to be able to bring the kids here to get some exercise and to burn off some energy?

Mary: Definitely. I’m watching my daughter on that spring rider. It’s her favorite. Is that your son on the slide?

Patrick: It is. Over there, I have two other sons playing on the merry-go-round. They’re the ones wearing green.

Mary: Oh, yeah, I see them. Do you have other kids?

Patrick: My son Frankie and daughter Terese are on the jungle gym hanging on the monkey bars. See them?

Mary: Oh, sure. Are those two on the seesaw yours, too?

Patrick: They are, and those three boys on the swings are mine, too. Over there, you’ll see another one of my sons swinging on the trapeze rings, and right here is my youngest playing in the sandbox.

Mary: Wait, how many children do you have?

Patrick: Only 11.
