Eating ice cream.
In the city, where Joe lives,
there are different things to do
on different Saturday mornings in the park.
Of all the things to do,
Joe wanted to play baseball more than anything else.
There were lots of kids playing baseball in the park,
but Joe didn't know any of them.
"Can I play?" Joe asked one of the boys.
"Scram, kid," said the boy, not even looking at Joe.
"We've got enough guys."
