Lucky For You, You Can't Experience the NOISE, NOISE, NOISE!

Dylan had "Go to the Science Center" on his To Do List for Summer.  He's been talking about it for quite some time.  Every time we were about to leave to go somewhere, he would ask, "Are we going to the Science Center today?!"  I have to admit, I might have been putting it off.  I didn't really want to go.  Ever since I became old, (when exactly did that happen?!), going to that place just exhausts me.  I leave with the overwhelming desire to take a very long nap.  

It was so crowded that I thought Jim was going to pop a blood vessel in his head just looking for a space to park.  Dylan was screaming, "YOU CAN PARK THERE...OR THERE... OR THERE!!!" from the backseat, pointing to trees, or grass, or imaginary parking spaces that only he saw.  Jim was yammering about "If there aren't any spots than WTH did the guy let us pay to get in here?!"  I was trying to maintain my breathing while being whipped around through the parking lot by an angry driver.  All that was before we even got in the five level building!  Once in, I was accosted by the NOISE, NOISE, NOISE of the masses of humanity, who were all SO excited to learn about science.  (I think I've mentioned I'm not exactly thrilled by the subject).  Oh well.  I survived, and although I really wanted one, I didn't get that nap.  At least we can cross one more thing off the To Do List... until next year.

Sometimes I wish I lived in the city. Other times I'm glad I don't. However, being able to go to a cool science center like that would be awesome! And, yes, I'd need a nap too!

looks like an awesome place... but yeah, i'd probably rather have it to myself :-)

Looks like a great science center. But, watch out for those parking lot wild drivers!

You are SO not alone on not wanting to go to noisy places! Too much noise and too many people makes my anxiety creep up in a ridiculous way - to the point that we generally only go to places like that during the week! So glad Dylan had fun - and I hope you got a nap!

Ronnie used to teach on the boats out back behind the Science Center. We'd go in there (before kids!) just for fun on date nights.
