Feral children and funny carts

We made our biannual trip to the Pizza Inn for dinner tonight and it never fails to entertain us. We were kind of struggling as to where to go to eat since we have a vegetarian and sometimes she would like something other than just salad. So we loaded up on Zantac and took our chances. We ate and watched people and ate a little bit more. They have a tiny little arcade there with two real video games, two blasted claw rip off games and several traditional "bubble gum" machines with tattoos and plastic crap. The boy enjoys playing the video game that has probably 20 original video games from my youth: Donkey Kong, all the Pac Man versions, Dig Dug, Centipede, Space Invaders...all the good ones. While he was being devoured by Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde, feral children from the adjacent table decided to come into the 5'x10' arcade area and climb on top of the bubble gum machines while hacking to the point that I had to grab the children for fear of a TB risk. At one point, the little sister was licking the claw machine. That is when we decided to head for the door. After we got home, I needed to make a trip to Kroger to pick up, uh, some personal items since we do have three girls living in this house. It never fails that, the time I am walking around Kroger with a cart full of these products, I run into what seems like every man who goes to our church. They start to talk to you until they see the words on the packaging. They basically back off with hands in the air and say, "Best of luck." Tonight was no different. I tried to cover them up with Mother's Day cards, but no luck. Ah well. They'll know not to mess with me...HA.

On that note...I'm off to bed.

Night all.
