Playmobil Pirate

sillygwailo. Playmobil Pirate.

This afternoon the family and I enjoyed a leisurely lunch of bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches while we argued the finer points of the Viking, Roman and Pirate sets of Playmobil. Windows open, plenty of sunshine, the sound of our chicken, Rosemary, clucking in the yard and thoughtful conversation: Why do we play with pirates? Weren’t they thieves? Where did the treasures come from? Weren’t the English and the Spanish stealing too? If the pirates stole from the people with the ships did that make them steal from the people in South America more?
