Some people say that one of the things they miss when
on the Ice is the sound of children. Funny, because
most of these people don't actually HAVE children. I
for one find it a nice quiet existence. I'm not saying
the world should be without children. I mean, where
would we be in 100 or so years. Worm food as a species
on the Cockroach Planet. But children should be quiet.
Was I this noisy as a child? I like to think
that I wasn't. And...I had manners, or at least was
taught what manners were...even if I didn't listen to
my parents at a particular time. By staying at the
YMCA, we open ourselves up to all types of folks coming
and going at all times of day. However, I wasn't prepared
for the HUGE amounts of school children that visit the "Y"
on a daily basis. I think the jet engines of a C-17 make
less noise. Everyone under the age of 17 has to talk above
each other. HAS to be heard. Yes, I sound like an old
fuddy-duddy...but my head (and ears) hurt.
