So was the blaring of noise just to join in and be a part of the clamor? Was it some poorly executed attempt to do what other vendors do? I can see a three year old’s inclination to shout out for the sake of shouting out and joining in, but I don’t yet get how it makes sense for an adult vendor.

Vivid post. I can smell the fried seafood!

Joel,

The quick answer is I don’t know. I’m suggesting that noise has become a default ambient sensory stimulus for adults at least in part as a result of all the childhood exposure. And so on. So, “join in and be part of the clamor” about sums it up, I think.
