It’s interesting how adults act on vacation in a beach town. I think they’re trying to recapture a piece of their youth. So some, not all, seem to act about 10 or 15 years younger than they really are. A little drunker, a little louder and quite a bit goofier. The guy flirts with the waitress right in front of his long suffering wife. She’s usually cool about his flirtation because of all the people in the world; she knows how harmless he really is. Of course, women aren’t exempt from this phenomenon either. They’ll dress a little hotter than they’d ever do at home just hoping and praying some doorman will card them. Now the doorman knows how flattering women find this so they card a lot of older women. Could there be a better way to greet a cute 35-90 year old woman at a drinking establishment? “Is everybody happy?” YEAH!!!
They go home after a week to their normal humdrum lives and I’m still here at the beach waiting for next week’s cast of characters. That’s my observation from the bandstand.
