Ramblings No.001

October 8, 2009 at 7:08 PM 3 comments

I’ve decided to start a new category called “Ramblings,” which I suppose are like “Bread Crumbs,” only bigger.

Anyways, a couple weeks ago, I actually consciously took notice of one of those rides (I’m almost tempted to say ‘toy’) that they have outside of supermarkets and everything. It struck me that who actually uses these things? Once in a while, you spot a parent caving in to Bambi eyes, and pulling out a dollar for their kids to go ’round in circles, for the duration of which the adult stands listlessly staring at their kid. My family has never been one to spend on these things, and I imagine few other families would, so it makes me wonder if these brightly painted hunks of metal are even cost-effective. On the other hand, maybe they’re just decorations, as you rarely see a supermarket or food court without one or two somewhere, sorta like the now obsolete gumball machines.

Speaking of gumball machines and the like, if you’ve ever tried some, the candy is more resistant than an anthrax spore, probably because they have to last so long since nobody ever buys them.

Apparently, in the decade the two years I spent in kindergarten, child’s play has changed dramatically. Recently, the subject of cooties has popped up, and on a whim, I irresistibly Wikied it. Kids are now providing each other with immunizations, which I didn’t expect them to know, and if they did, to associate it sharp points and plungers. They also are now “pretend[ing] to be representatives from health insurance companies.” But that’s not all. Not only are kids growing up too fast, but they’re also losing their innocence and becoming money-grubbing like the companies they emulate, “denying [other kids] their pretend claims for compensation” because of cooties. I wonder if they’ll conform to Obama’s plan, though.

    I actually forced my mom to hand over 25 cents when I was five years old so I can go ride one of those things. Didn’t turn out as fun as I hoped, and it was very awkward, because there were kids around me staring, begging their parents to let them ride it too. Never rode one again.

    LOL the kids these days are growing up so fast. Representatives from health insurance companies? What?
    When I was five, no one in my school ever talked about cooties.
