I am certain my parents wouldn't have let me create that sort of noise pollution in a public space not dedicated to exuberant, physical fun. In a playground, fine. In an airport, no way.
Have people simply abdicated their parental responsibility? The evidence suggests many have done exactly that. And we wonder why test scores are down.
Our United flight was totally full and probably overbooked. They were asking for volunteers to take a later flight, we didn't volunteer. The wifi wasn't working and neither was the entertainment system, a drag on a transcontinental flight lasting five hours. Fortunately I got some sleep after supper.
Now the local time is two a.m. and we're wide awake as our body clocks think it's eleven p.m. Tomorrow we board the Allure of the Seas and cruise for a week. The ship itself is the attraction, the destinations are secondary - Jamaica, Haiti, and Cozumel.
The first thing I did after turning on the light in our motel room was to use my shoe to kill a two inch water bug/roach. We've only seen one but know more are nearby, lurking. That is absolutely par for the course in Florida, bugs love Florida as much as New Yorkers do, and for the same reasons. Ah, the joys of travel.
