No Times For Playtimes

I want to think it's dedication, or even just a fantasy, but I know it's a delusion.

Even when K2's pre-school's seemingly endless Spring Break ends tomorrow, I have too much going on to ever surf through the British Library's amazing-looking Playtime archive, which documents a hundred years of playground games and children's nursery rhymes and songs.

At least I don't have any illusions about ever being able to work through the incredible Opie Audio Archives, compiled over three decades by the pioneering childhood anthropologist couple Peter and Iona Opie. I mean, I'm not crazy.
