As a married father of 3, you don't exactly paint the town red on the weekends anymore. Usually I'm breaking up the latest round of the Fight That Won't End between Rakes and Trot and listening to Ciera give me her latest breathless report on what the Jonas Brothers have been up to.
Tonight, Trot spent the night with his Grandparents and Ang and I took Rakes and Ciera to the latest incarnation of "Disney on Ice" featuring The Incredibles. Besides the horde of rugrats in the building and the $12 dollar plastic sword Rakes just HAD to have it wasn't all that bad.
Well, except for the cheesy dialogue, incessant hawking of all things Disney and that little kid 2 rows behind us whacking some sort of Thunder Stick every 3.7 seconds. Other than that? It was better than going to the Dentist and worse than getting a splinter under your fingernail.
Although at one point I did lean over to Ang and promise to buy a Mrs. Incredible outfit for her in the very near future.
So at least something good came out of the evening.
