BigFunnyBlog– A couple weeks ago, I lucked into a trip to Dave & Buster’s. For those that have never been, Dave & Buster’s is basically Chuck E. Cheese for adults. They have beer, violent video games, and lonely single moms, so yeah, it’s the best place on Earth.
However, something was different about this trip. The zombie-killing gun games didn’t have the same magic. Instead, I had more fun with all the boring games from my youth, like skeeball and the basketball hoops. It was the first time I’d even shot a basketball in like 15 years but I just had to play that game over and over. Unfortunately, the average Dave & Buster’s trip costs more than putting a kid through college, so I was going to need another way to get my basketball fix.
A few days later, I bought a basketball and started searching for a hoop. This was a monumental step because I hadn’t exercised since the sad day I retired my Richard Simmons “Sweatin’ to the Oldies” tapes. Sure, those tapes work wonders and I was in the best shape of my life but it wasn’t worth the risk of sticking with them. Richard Simmons is getting up there in age and my biggest fear was to see him tragically pass away and then come to visit his biggest fan in the afterlife. Regular boogey men are scary enough, imagine the nightmare fuel you’d get from seeing Richard Simmons’ ghost. more
