Noisesome Pestilence

Why can't people enjoy the natural part of "being outdoors" without their farkin' stereo systems and stacked speakers?

The beach has become a Battle of the Bands competition. Can't hear the lovely waves. Gah!

There's more to this rant, but I'd rather enjoy the silence.

"Kids these days" cannot function without constant music, text, phones, and stimulation.

This summer I've done my best to teach my children (8 and 12) the value of slack. Silence. Unstructured time. Books.

I doubt it'll hold, but at least I tried.

The bad thing is these doctors WAY over book.
They make you wait and then they spend 2 seconds with you and they are so rushed that *I* end up getting flustered and forget what I wanted to talk to them about.

A shame. This is a rampant, ongoing pissing contest in my 'hood...being outdoors usually means car horns honking furiously, and drivers screaming "EFF YOU, EFFING A-HOLE!," but that's kind of natural background noise for us. The Dueling Amplifiers in the back trunk is quite unnecessary.

Hey, remember we got into a bit of a duel on V-Man's blog a few months ago?

Joan of Argghh! said...

That was no duel! You presented no credible offense or defense. It was a slam-dunk...

:0)

Oh, just kidding. Don't hit me!! Of course, a chick fight might put our blogs on the map, so to speak.

You up for it? We'll split the readership profits and buy ourselves a pizza!

Thanks for visiting. I AM honored.

And ornery...

Oh, God...I'm up to my nosehairs in bloggy duels, haha....but sure! I'm self conscious, as I think you could write circles around me, but I'll give it my best shot.

You start, OK?...while I dig through your archives and try to come up with some doit.

What? You think I'm nutz? I ain't EVEN going up against a Joisey Joo Girl!

I'm happily ensconced in my Slack and, while I may put a brave face on it, my flame-war days are seven years behind me. I'm a kinder, gentler bitch nowadays.

Old age will do that...

Ow! Alright! I meant Brooklyn girl. Okay?!! Sheesh.

I mean, anywhere north of Virginia is just "yankees" to a Florida girl, so we don't get the noooances of the diff between Joisey and Brooklyn.
