The (Stare at) Children's Museum

Took the weeuns to the Children's Museum today, where the volunteers are highly trained to stare at any children nearby but never ever smile and never ever speak. The facial features are not to move. Arms are preferably to be folded against the chest and every effort is to be made to assume the posture of a party host whose guests have stayed too long.

If a child appears to need help, volunteers are trained to look at the floor.

One go-getting volunteer took it to the next level by planting herself in the chair room, in a chair, and reading. By herself. While nobody else was even in that room to stare at.

A new group of volunteers was being trained while we were there, and, may I say, it looks like a bumper crop this year!
