On Friday, I had off work.
I spent the day running some errands.
Around lunch, my errand companion and I found ourselves by the Springettsbury Township Walmart hungry for pizza.
So, we did the most logical thing we could think of.
We went to Chuck E Cheese — something I had previously made fun of a friend for doing.
I mean, who goes to Chuck E Cheese as an adult, right?
But this friend had a good point. The York area doesn’t have any good arcades. No Dave & Busters. No where to partake in a good game of skee ball.
Being adults, I was a little concerned they wouldn’t let us in without a child.
As I was buying us pizza, the cashier told me that adults come to that Chuck E Cheese all the time. She said the venue has even hosted a few adult birthday parties.
I spent $5 for 20 tokens and we played games like 5-year-olds.
We ended up with 75 tickets.
In my more appropriate Chuck E Cheese-going days, that at least got you a good amount of candy.
We ended up with a Fun Dip — a single packet of sugary dust, which costs circa 25 cents at your local pool concession stand.
When you factor in the cost of a good time … OK. I’m not really sure what that is.
The moral of this story is, I paid $5 for Fun Dip on Friday and I am not ashamed.
Well done, Chuck E Cheese. Well done.
