Why do we care about wands and debate them up and down? Why do we dissect the parks down to every detail? Why do we show so much interest in the past, present, and future? Do you care so much about other theme/amusement parks of yesterday and today as well?
I am not posting this thread to judge because *I* care too! I was just thinking about where the inner drive to be so curious about all this even comes from. I tried to explain my excitement in seeing photos of the wand come down to my DH and he looked at me with a blank stare. My mom could care less. Most of my friends I don't even bother talking about this stuff. I guess the only person who cares (besides YOU) is my Dad (to an extent) as I realized last night while chatting about old amusement parks in southern california and central florida with him.
I just loving seeing things that define pop culture and recent history and how they change over the years (even if it makes me sad.) I devour web sites devoted to modern ruins. I love seeing pictures that remind of my very early years. When I walk around a place like WDW, I want to appreciate the blood, sweat and tears that was invested in the attractions etc. Even if I don't like it! I am sure I annoy my husband with seemingly "useless" factoids about WDW etc..when we go there, but I just want to share what I learn. I guess this is a sign that I must go to a Micechat park meetup one day and be with like-minded fanatics.
So what about YOU, why the heck do you care? hehe
