new toy.

mom’s know what kids like.  My mom brought a pair of binoculars along with dinner.  I knew these would be fun but i had no idea how much i would be tickled by looking at people.  One part of the experience that can be somewhat jarring is the fact that people are always observing your actions.  Every time i want to sit in the sun there is a crowd wondering how i potty.  Now the tables have turned.  Viewing people through binoculars is a really intrusive way a t looking at someone.  i feel a little like  a peeping tom but i don’t have the feeling of shame because these people are looking at me all day.  It’s been really funny to see how uncomfortable people get when they know they are being watched even if they are gawking at me. It’s not often that the exhibit views back.  This will be another good time waster and contribution to the social experiment.

    Totally fair game – don’t feel guilty at all! And they’re really cool binoculars, to boot. Your mom is on it!

    Thanks for the island tour on Sunday. It was the day’s highlight!
