Consolation for the Woes of a Consumerist World

November 26, 2010

Further to the post immediately below this one, I have one happy reflection: For all of the ambient consumerist madness that prevails, especially today on so-called Black Friday, and for all the times that I lament my inability to raise children who do not, at least at times, clamor for new baubles with sickening zeal, to the point that they look forward to the aquarium gift shop almost as much as the sharks and sea turtles, it is reassuring to me that both of my boys deemed the most exciting part of today’s aquarium trip to be riding the subway there and back (or, as the three-year-old calls it, the “someway”).
