>My family and I are not on the same wavelength when it comes to events and day trips. I’m a leave in the 7th inning, skip the fake encore kind of gal. Everyone else in my family is a bitter-ender. They stay until the bitter end of whatever event they are attending, with the exception of parties, of course.
I don’t mind going to chili-cook offs and street fairs, but I am only entertained for about an hour. Unless there is some cute guy in my party with whom I can flirt, I grow bored. I need something to distract me from the quasi-suffocating crowds besides the displays of knick-knacks and deep fried Twinkies.
