If you think road rage is bad on I-25 during rush hour, you have not experienced the frustrations and barely restrained hostilities happening every day in school parking lots. Different schools, different cities, different states. It’s all the same. And much of it boils down to some basic personality differences.
I really don’t like playing with the superhero dolls. It’s simply not fun for me. There’s no direction in the play. What, exactly, are these superheroes doing? What’s the end goal here? None. There is no end goal.
