The 1,000-Yard Holiday Stare

Withnail: We’ve gone on holiday by mistake.
             – from Withnail & I (1987)

Note to self: Holidayers who have been in noisy museums for too long with their kids have the insensate 1,000-yard stare of a third tour-of-duty Vietnam-era infantry person.

  1. “the insensate 1,000-yard stare of a third tour-of-duty Vietnam-era infantry person.”
    Just what are your qualifications to make that statement?

  2. You’re right. It’s more like a second tour.
