    The Sisyphus legend is never explained well until many years later by Indiana Jones.

    Where’s his three headed dog? Plus that’s Charon (Karen) on the swing giving him a judgmental side eye.

    As a kid it was often more fun to use (play on) playground equipment in way that it was not originally designed (or supposed) to be used.

    Such as: Climbing or walking up a slide instead of sliding down it.

    Swinging on a swing standing up. Twisting and spinning on swings. Swinging high and jumping off – to see how high and far you can jump.

    2 person fight to knock the other person off the hand-over-hand bars.

    Ha! I remember him. The kid was always so pushy – but not if you’ were on the swings.

    I guess Sisyphus in a “play” ground is supposed to be irony.

    He was always inclined to be pushy.
