It is no secret that when out in public well behaved kids are a thing for me. If they are not, it torques my jaw. I want polite, moderate tones, and manners. Last week I commented on the fantastically behaved young gentlemen that were at dinner with their young mom.
Tonight, I am having dinner at a competitor of that restaurant, much smaller, family owned, a few other seated tables. There is a little girl playing hide and seek with a teen boy. Not loud but certainly not quiet.
Usually I might get extremely irritated by this. For some reason, this isn't bothering me. I think it is because it is a small family atmosphere rather than a more traditional restaurant.
Or, just maybe, I beginning to mellow a bit.
Nah! Not likely.
