tell us how you really feel


Delere saw this in a mall food court, and explains "The "family square" mentioned on the sign is a little corral made of white picket fence. The corral presumably keeps dancing children from bumping into shoppers." Sounds like a place that LOVES children.

When my sister was three, my mom had to chase her down to get her to do anything. One time, as my sis was trying to break free she yelled, "Joy! Save me! I have to dance!!!"

I hadn't though of that in a long time, but that's the first thing that popped in my mind when I saw that sign.

Wow, I just love "dancing!"
Yikes.

"Dance", eh? Is that what the kids are calling it these days?

Sounds like a perfect place to me. Keep those kids corralled where they can't run into me and get their grubby hands all over me while their parents (who apparently don't feel like parenting) give me dirty looks for being irritated.

I think the fence is a great idea, keeps those kids in that can-pass-germs!

Gez said...

So scornful of the dancing skills of children! Do you think the sign writer stands on the edge of the corral mocking the kids?

"You call that dancing? You lot couldn't dance your way out of a wet paper bag. Idiots! I'm calling child 'protection'."

Or something

Ha! I guess it's a response to the parents. Management sees the kids running around and yells at the parents. The parents say "can't you see he's dancing?! My child is adorable!!" (yeah, right) To which management says "fine, if he wants to 'dance,' he can do it in the corral over there!
