From the Perspective of a People Watcher

"There's almost a fistfight.Cooler heads prevail. A man arguesd with his wife over who had the keys last, they're in his back pocket where he never puts them. The baby won't fall asleep and that little song that always works isn't today" (Whitehead 246).

            I felt like I was reading the observations of Miss Brill in the beginning of part four. Seriously, is it really necessary to spend five pages describing pointless activities going on at a festival. I think most people know what a festival is and if they don't, they could look up a simple definition and that would be enough. I remember reading that every word in writing has meaning, but I can't grasp the reason for writing such pointless descriptions. I want action not a people watcher's notes on the day's observations.
