if my children cared to paint something USEFUL, i may take them there more often. however, they will predictably choose a pikachu statue that will live in a dusty corner of a household shelf for all eternity. but i digress. h actually chose well with a trinket box shaped as a castle (minor usefulness). the daughter on the other hand picked a large sleeping cat sculpture. sigh.
i chose a large square-bottomed coffee mug (see below). you will NOT need coffee on any morning that you choose this mug, because its' garish design will certainly keep you awake all day, if not all night.
i'll post the final products after they are done being glazed.
in the meantime, you may be wondering what i have to endure tomorrow in order to clear this conscience. unfortunately, it's chuck-e-cheese's. ugh. i avoid that place like the plague, exactly BECAUSE i'm afraid one of us might GET the plague there. why kids like it is beyond me. maybe some of them are representative of the wild and crazy tv ads, but NOT the one here. it stinks. i'm hoping that with this trip, i will be able to successfully avoid the place for another year or two.
