Paper Things

So far this weekend has been pretty sweet, nothing has really happened per say, but it has been good. Khaki and I went to dinner at Outback Steakhouse last night which ended up being the longest wait of our lives, but in the end the grub was good so it was ok. There's nothing worse than going to a restaurant and hearing that the wait is over an hour long...and then after and hour and a half you are still sitting in the waiting area while the hostesses are dinking around their little stand making small talk with the waiters. LAME!

While we were waiting we got to watch these two kids hitting their parents with those paper things you get at birthday parties. You know, those long strips of paper that are wrapped around a stick and you can propel the paper in a long joust-type shape. I tried to find a picture of this thing online, but I had no idea what to call it. Google did not produce any credible sources for the search "paper wrapped around stick". All it was able to come up with was sticky paper places or wrapping paper. Anyway, around the time one of the kids was screaming and the other was hitting his father with the paper thing I started believing I wasn't cut out to have little monsters or children as some call them. We'll see.
