And when did he stop carrying his yo yo and his favourite marble in his back pocket; when did he leave his childhood behind?
Actually, that was how the idea of building a swing was born in his father’s mind. In a way, it was due to the fact that he believed Magnifico would immensely enjoy it, and that was what finally happened.
Also, at the same time however, he built it so that his son wouldn’t spend so much time in the high, elevated boughs of the pine tree, and in that manner achieve a little more peace of mind for his wife.
But this last part didn’t happen like he expected, for Magnifico would still climb to the upper branches, just like before, and then, he also played, not only in the swing, but also with its thick ropes as well, performing all kinds of daring stunts, during those Saturday picnics in the glade.
