Happy Last Monday in July, Perseph-o-Friends! I hope that July’s been all you’ve ever wanted and more. Yesterday, I took my kids to a birthday party at a local amusement place. There were bounce houses, arcade games, a bungee trampoline, bumper cars and laser tag.
Both kids are finally old enough to be fairly independent, and we all had a lot of fun. They won a lot of tickets from a couple of games, and it was reminiscent of my brothers and I carefully collecting our tickets back in the day. Yesterday, however, instead of painstakingly counting out their tickets with sweaty hands at the redemption counter, we swiped our game card and then fed the tickets into a machine. Our tickets were counted and a credit was issued onto our card. I admit it, it kind of blew my mind.
What was your favorite thing at the arcade growing up? I have always been a fan of Skee Ball and air hockey.
