Sometimes It’s Great To Be An Adult

Jump to Comments

Last weekend my wife and I went to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and I had a moment of clarity after playing Whac-A-Mole. We had run out of tokens, and had already burned through about $20 on various games, but I wanted to play a few more.

When I was a kid, running out of tokens at an arcade/boardwalk/midway was one of the worst feelings because it meant embarking on the uphill battle of trying to finagle more money out of my parent/grandparent; but now, it was just the opposite. I felt a brief moment of dread and then it passed as I put $5 in the token machine and continued playing. How great is that?
