With family like these...

It's that time of year again, folks. Time for the annual department outing at work (tomorrow). This year we're going to The Main Event (sort of an indoor amusement park for adults - bowling, pool, blackjack (?) and laser tag).

When I was telling my wife about it, the Youngest Aardvark Child (YAC) was sitting close by. Upon hearing that I was going to The Main Event, she pipes up, "Are you going to do LASER TAG?"

"Nope. Not planning on it."

"Why not Dad. Laser tag IS FUN!"

"Maybe if I was twenty years younger and in better shape..."

"No Dad, you need to do it." She's practically bouncing up and down at this point.

"I'm not playing laser tag."

"But WHY?"

"'Cause I'm an OLD FART, Ok?"

"But Dad, you're not old."
