Since I’ve been a bit backed-up in my blogging, I’m going to make it up to you, dear readers, with something I know you always enjoy: me making a fool of myself. (Be sure to watch in HQ!)
Last Saturday I was back in my ancestral homeland of Long Island. That night, I celebrated my friend Jordan’s birthday with him and a few other notables at Dave & Buster’s. I hit all my favorites: skee-ball, the Star Wars trilogy arcade game, and the massive multi-player trivia game. We also found a big rig simulator that had a wonderfully obnoxious horn, and some bizarre little racing game where each player powered their racer by rolling a ball set into the console. I slapped my palms against that thing so hard and so fast that I thought I had broken one of my fingers. That’s what she said…?
The video above was taken after I nailed one of those “follow the light” games on the first try, and nearly 300 tickets came pouring out. Carol and I were quite taken with our success. We’re getting our groove on to the music emanating from the machine behind us. Unfortunately, you can’t hear it. Instead, I invite you to think of a totally corny pop/dance song, and imagine that I’ve shaking my moneymaker (and my “money”) to that. In fact, why don’t you leave the title and artist in a comment on this post? I’m always looking for new selections from iTunes…
