Believe it or not, the kid has never been to Chuck E. Cheese. There wasn't one close to where we used to live in D.C., and most of the birthday parties we went to were hosted at the homes of her friends. So when I asked her what she would like to do this year to celebrate her last single-digit birthday, she asked to go to Chuck E. Cheese and I of course said, "O.K."
It was utter mayhem and she had a wonderful time. I have to admit I did, too. I mean Skee Ball. Took me right back to my childhood arcade days on the boardwalk at the Jersey Shore.
