After work tonight, Bender, Nathan, Karl, and myself went for beers and dinner at Lonestar. After that, I headed to Rebel Sport down at Chermside, to pick up my heart rate monitor which had been in for repairs. Seems like a pretty normal thing to do of an evening.
Well, seemingly if you’re a “kid” aged (say) 15-17, your ideal plans crossed somewhat with mine. The number of kids down at Chermie was amazing! There must have been about 300 – 400 of them, all loitering around the cinemas, Playtime, and just outside the entrance. Madness! But why, I ask you? When I was that age, I would have been either at work, or home doing school work. Why don’t these kids have jobs? Why aren’t they studying? What’s so cool about hanging around a shopping centre? What’s wrong with the world? (Or have I missed something here… ?)
