The alleged perv next to the mouse
I got tons of good material this weekend at a party with kids and later at the giant outlet mall where we spent ungodly sums of money. I actually feel shame – so we helped Peaches and Peggy excavate 140 cubic feet of dirt for their new patio.

Anyway, I’ll share with you this short story.

We visited a friends’ house for their daughter’s first birthday. The place was packed with people and kids and even a couple of dogs. Everyone was having a great time.

Our friends said that they’d gone to the home of one Charles Edward Cheese to mark the event earlier in the week. While at said Cheese residence, the kids enjoyed games and pizza while our friends took guarding the table.

Apparently a man was sitting by himself nearby eating pizza and kind of watching the kids. Some of the mothers noted this and alerted other mothers in the area. Then they complained to the manager.

Our friends started to giggle at the retelling. Apparently the man was a dad, keeping the table while his slightly older kids (in the 10+ age range) ignored him and spent his money on video games.

There’s a lesson in all of this. I’m sure someone can tell me what it is.

Oh, great. Maybe I'll just stay inside with the curtains drawn on Father's Day.

No wait, that would attract attention, too!
