Back in the day, when I was a wee child, I remember watching Chuck E Cheese commercials on the 'ol family television. Oh how I wished I could partake of the joyous merriment of playing various electronic games, winning tickets, and eating a piece of steaming, hot, cheesy, pizza. However, I am from a remote town, that was three hours away from the nearest mall. It didn't happen. My wish was put on hold.
But I am pleased to announce that just this last Friday, my undying wish came true!
As we approached the Chuck E Cheese, my heart was a flutter. We began to make our way to the front doors when a crying, hysterical child clung on to the door handles, refusing to leave. "No! No! No! I don' wanna go, daddy! I don' wanna go home, daddy!"
I felt sorry for the Chuck E Cheese employees. I'll have to remember to include them in my daily prayers.
(this picture was not taken by me, but my pizza was an exact replica of the one shown above. nasty.)
There were all sorts of children running around. Cute ones, annoying ones, barefoot ones (ewwwww), crazy ones, and rude ones. Like this rude one pictured below. My oldest son, Cody put his tokens into this game, was about to push the button, when Spanky cut in front of him and pushed the button. I bet Spanky got the boot on his leg from someone kicking him in the shin for being so rude. Turd.
What was more amusing than the various children, were their parents and their guardians. This mullet wearing parent below, was a shining example of pro-marijuana use and what happens to one's demeanor after years of partaking in recreational drug use. And he wore it proudly on his cap. Well done dad, well done. I would've gotten a picture of the front of his cap, but I was fearful of him. He scowled and did not smile. If you ask me, he probably needed a hit to help loosen him up. (please do not take me seriously. I do not recommend recreational drug use to help loosen one self up. if you do take me seriously, do not sue me. i have no money.)
There were multitudes of scantily clad dressed women. One in particular looked very similar to Marge. This was a very difficult environment to capture their images. Too many witnesses.
Here's my main man throwin' back a few...footballs, that is. I love it when he throws back a few. Check out his sinewy arm as he grasps the 'ol pigskin. I enlarged the picture for your viewing pleasure.
Conner enjoyed the Chuck E Cheese festivities. He also enjoyed the greasy pizza, as you can see from the pizza crumb remnants on his face.
More fun and games.
Tickets! Tickets! Cody won a total of 500 tickets.
Cody was hoping to exchange his tickets for an awesome Lego thingy or a Wii game. Instead he got a few pieces of candy. Rip off.
We left Chuck E Cheese's with fond memories of greasy pizza, flashy games, tickets, and "Serial Killer Dad".
