(Grip) Very Frank

Postby Grip » Sat Jan 14, 2017 7:41 pm

Frank hates crowds and won't go anywhere that is crowded. However, there is one place Frank won't go UNLESS it's crowded. Why?

Does Frank hate the crowd in the crowded place? Relevant why he hates crowds? Does he hate something else worse? Fear something else? Love something else? Is this place required to be crowded for something relevant to happen? Wag: he hates crowds but loves concerts, and the artists play better and longer when there's a big crowd to appreciate them?

Does he go to the crowded place to enjoy what he loves? Is he part of the crowd when he goes there? Are the crowd: passers by? Spectators? Participants? Guests? Have they paid to be there? Does Frank interact with people in the crowd? Is his profession relevant?

A stadium? Park? Mountain? Is it safer to go there with a crowd there? Is it pointless to be there alone? Boring? Is his reason for going there when it's crowded the same as the reason he normally hates crowded places?

***** SPOILER *****

Frank has an eye for lovely ladies and the feminine form, so despite his usual anxiety and nervousness when it comes to visiting crowded places, he'll overlook all that when it comes to going to the beach on a hot summers day.
