Playing at the Arcade

Yesterday, we woke up feeling exhausted. We went to eat lunch with some old friends, but I had trouble forming complete sentences I was so tired. As we drove from Cedar Hill, TX to Dallas, Brock kept getting lost and he never gets lost.

We would be staying with Brock's brother that night and he would not get home until about 7pm, so we had some time to kill yesterday afternoon. Brock pulled over at a Dave and Buster's and said, "Let's go play games in the arcade."

I did not realize how much fun that would be! We had a very tiresome and stressful week. It was simply wonderful to let everything go on these silly video games. We raced cars in the Daytona 500. Brock got to shoot at bad guys. He was a marine in one of the games. I played Deal of No Deal and won what is equivalent to the million dollars in the TV game. On the video game, the jackpot was 250 tickets. We could use our tickets to download stuff from Itunes. Isn't that crazy? The arcade is so much more sophisticated than when I was a kid.
