For Everything Else, There's MasterCard

For all the kind people who wrote in and asked how my 3 day vacation was last week:

1 Day Pass to Sesame Place For Family: $125
1 Day Pass to Dutch Wonderland: $90
Parking My Damn Car At Sesame Place: $14
Eating Meals: $150
Hotel: $250
Gas/Tolls: $60
Buying Every Stuffed Animal Known To Man: $100

Seeing The Look Of Joy On My Son's Face: You might think the answer would be "Priceless", but somehow my fucking brain keeps changing that answer to, oh $789.00!

It's not that I can't appreciate the value of making my son happy, but somewhere along the line If someone had pulled me aside and said, "OK, we can make him alittle less happy and knock $300 off the tab", I would have jumped all over it.

I guess it's just hard for me to justify spending that much money for 3 days for anything called a "vacation" that doesn't involve me getting drunk on a beach with strippers somewhere, but maybe that's just me.

Speaking of "The Look Of Joy", check out the unbridled glee on the pic below of my son, after waiting 30 minutes on line for this ride.

I think Lee Harvey had that same look on his face in the book depository.

p.s. I know I'm being a prick. Regardless of what the picture above implies, he really did have fun. I just wish they had thrown in some of those stippers.....
