Tickets = Happy Kids (Thu 7/22/10)

I’m sure you’ve noticed that the posts are coming later than normal lately, and that would be due to the fact that I am spending much of my non-teaching time playing with my kids. Last night, for example, we went to Dave and Busters where the kids hit the ticket-producing games like they were in Vegas.

My son Nolan won 500 tickets on his first try at his first game (!), and he was jumping up and down and screaming so loud you’d have thought he just won ten million dollars. Even I started to get all excited until I remembered that 500 tickets will win you, due to rising inflation and the falling value of the ticket, the equivalent of a gumball. Piper was tearing it up at Skee Ball, while Danielle was kicking some serious tail on the horse racing game. (As a side note, I think next year’s CrossFit Games should include a Skee Ball event. Just sayin’…)

When the credits on the cards ran out and it was time to go shopping, the D&B ticket store seemed to have been looted as it was pretty much barren of anything remotely resembling a cool toy. We wandered around looking at the same 12 crappy toys for roughly 30 minutes in hopes that they would begin to appear more cool. (It was much like some parties I remember from college with no pretty girls in attendance, though at least in college there was beer which, after awhile, significantly improved their appearance!) So the kids finally found some acceptable “toys” (a “Cars” checker set, a stuffed mini D&B soccer ball, a *very* large lollipop, a stuffed bear, a couple of little plastic frisbees, and a bunny rabbit that hops and makes a noise I’m sure no bunny rabbit would actually make unless it’s actively being eaten) and we headed out to the car after a good night of fun and merriment.
