I’m so excited! Tonight at midnight a brand new, wildly popular sequel to a previous video game comes out (Halo3). My sons are waiting with baited breath. My youngest, who will be thirteen in a few short days, thinks that he and I are going to pick up the game after school tomorrow. Little does he know there’s an audacious plan afoot. Tonight at 11:55 I will wake him from a sound sleep, force him to pull on his pants; then we will rush over to the local mall, joining long lines of individuals waiting to pick up their game. It’s silly and somewhat irresponsible to awaken your seventh-grader at midnight on a school night, but life is short. It’s easy to forget that, to get caught up in the day-to-day responsibilities and commitments. Next thing you know you’ve missed the opportunity to be silly and irresponsible. I want to create memories with my children that go down in the family chronicles as outrageous, spontaneous and exhilarating. So, if you see us in line, give us a wave. The more the merrier!
