I have posted previously about The Boy and his professional goals. Well, that has apparently changed. Last week we used our Best Buy Reward Zone Certificates to purchase Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games. The Boy has now stated that his new purpose is to become an Olympic High Jumper. He also decided that he would like to live at Disneyland. I suppose a gold medalist would have a better chance of convincing Mickey to share his digs. However, I was a bit puzzled by The Boy's next question.
"Dad, are there windows at Disneyland?"
"Yes. Why do you ask?"
"When I'm living there, I'll need to look outside to see if it's foggy or raining."
He is really thinking this through!
As an aside, if you shop at Best Buy frequently and you are not part of the Reward Zone program, you really should consider it. Unless, of course, you hate free money. Also, if you have a school-aged child, you should definitely check out Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games. The Boy is learning so much about the different events and all the various countries that compete. Plus, it is actually quite physically demanding, even for a Wii game. Great for the muscles, timing and, most importantly, sapping every last bit of energy just before bed time.
