Things that make you go, "Hmmm":

Gazillions (and yes, that is a number sanctioned by Disney) of people visit Disney World each year. I have seen many of them this week.

I have noticed that:

1. Most kids under the age of 6 cry at least once a day in Disney World despite the fact that this is the happiest place on Earth. It just goes to show you that most kids are greedy parasites and are never really happy. And I say that with all the love and affection of someone who spends all day with children. I enjoy them, they just don't appreciate the idea of delayed gratification.

2. 3 out of 4 families you pass by are arguing. Usually it involves Mom or Dad hissing something like, "And if you whine about it one more time you are going back to the hotel!" Then you can refer to #1 because the chid begins to cry.

3. There are many people schlepping infants around. Huh? How much fun can you have when you are stuck with a baby, 100 degree heat and only public restrooms? I'd rather walk through broken glass.

4. Same with people who need wheelchairs or scooters to get around...it seems more trouble that it is worth. Sorry, but when I am 75 years old and in a chair, I don't need to go on "It's a Small World".

5. Not everyone who works here is happy. Don't get me wrong, I think that is okay. I envisioned all these Stepfordesque cast members who just took peoples' crap 24/7. Not so. I have seen Grumpys...and I don't mean Dopey's roommate.

6. There are gazillions of South American teen tour groups! I realize it is a different way of life (a different continent even) but I can't see sending my 14 year old to another continent with 60 other 14 year olds and a few college students. They sure are partying it up, in the pool past midnight and they seem to have a chant for everything. Of course they could be saying, "Death to Floridians!", I have no idea. Also, Tom seems to be a big magnet for "beer buying" requests. They clearly don't know him, lol.

7. And is that woman over there SERIOUSLY wearing that bikini?? Sheesh, I shouldn't worry about my body at all. That chick has some major high self-esteem.

People watching is the best. I'm not judging, just noticing. Peace, out.

  1. I notice all those observations too, at the 'Fun Places'. How contradictory, huh?
