Sabrina is going to a birthday party today. Not just any birthday party. A birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese.
Is it just me? Am I the only adult that thinks Chuck E. Cheese is the most awful place EVER? Add in the fact that it's got a giant RAT (not that I have anything against rats as a species - just don't care for them being 6 feet tall and walking around on two legs) and I just don't see the appeal.
I have spent the last 4 years telling Sabrina there were no Chuck E. Cheese's near enough to go to. When she started school and found out her classmates have ACTUALLY GONE TO CHUCK E. CHEESE! Well, I'm not one to fall to peer pressure. Nope not me. I simply explained that her wealthier classmates were probably able to afford the airfare.
And truthfully, the closest Chuck E. Cheese franchise is about 40 minutes away. I might drive 40 minutes for, oh, say a visit to a really good friend. Maybe to a new shopping center. Maybe even to a party despite my antisocial tendencies.
But a restaurant teeming with 500 screaming children hopped up on sugar and caffeine and eyes glazed over from video games?
Not my idea of a good time.
And to add to my agony, I will have to take my 3 year old son and my 10 month old daughter with us. Neither of which have taken a nap today. The latter of which has been weeping with tiredness for the past 2 hours but refuses to sleep.
Do you think I could tell Sabrina that we missed our flight?
