There is a place here in Seattle called Pike Place Market. It’s a major tourist attraction and has been seen in movies. It’s a catacomb of little shops and odd places and street performers and street venders and it’s usually 10,000 tourist packed into a three block area.
For some reason, I want to go. It’s like I KNOW this would be bad. The pace of the place is frantic. The people packing in every 200 square foot shop is dizzying, the miss marked direction signs are confusing and frustrating, the noise level can knock you off your feet. The fish throwers vs. the street performers can get disorienting.
But I sort of want to go to see if I could take it. Could I walk through there and be OK? The sis doesn’t want to go. She said she would rather give up a toe then walk through the Tourist market ever again. She also says that we don’t need
I Seattle coffee mugs or Space Needle ear rings.
I know I’d be setting myself up for some major over stimulation. But I want to see how bad it might be. Would I be OK?
The kid sis thinks I’m poking the bee hive.
I was wondering, what do other people do to test the waters…
