I aim to please

I currently live among a teeming multitude of city folk. In my day to day interactions with them, I have surmised that city people do not know how to enjoy themselves. A city person "enjoys" being distracted. Whatever they find pleasurable, it must be distracting. A constant flit of activity. There is no pleasure for them in concentration, in focus. Thus when they travel to a less distracting berg, it is promptly pronounced "boring" with the attendant declaration that "there's nothing to do." Nothing to distract them, that is. And without achieving the pinnacle of distraction, they cannot enjoy themselves.
