Overheard: two men talking about the development agreement. One said he can’t wait until they build the mall and theaters here so his son will have something to do.
Me yelling inside my head: “Hey you idiot–we have two theaters already. You live at the beach, for gosh sakes–other kids would give their nintendos up for that, or have him volunteer with the seniors or the wildlife center, or make him take up a new hobby like stamp collecting or skateboarding, or–what a concept–play with him yourself. Take him to Agoura, a mere 20 minutes from here and dump him there instead of dumping him at a Malibu mall.
