I was in @costco buying a sled birthday gift. The women behind me in line made a comment about the sled. I turned to her and said “It’s a birthday gift for a friend. He is turning 8” She gave me this horrified look; which, of course, only spurred me on. “I’m so excited” I said. “The party is at Chuck E Cheese. Last time I was there I became stuck in one of the climbing tubes and could not move!” Her face was even more telling at this point. I continued “The fire department had to come and rescue me. I was wedged so tightly in the climbing tube that I lost my pants trying to free myself. Finally, after taking the entire apparatus apart, I was rescued, pant-less, but free!” She was hanging on every word as though trying to call for help in her head. I finished by asking “Do you think I should try climbing in the tubes again?”
This is what her face looked like as I was chatting with her!
Life is way to short not to have FUN!
