The final countdown.

it’s coming.

At exactly 1:00 PM EST tomorrow, I will be at the mercy of one of the greatest forces of nature that married man has ever encountered:

The Children’s Birthday party.

It is at that exact time tomorrow that I will lock into the power struggle when the SEVENTEEN one-to-seven year-olds and some of their corresponding adults descend on our encampment in the park.

How will it turn out? Many a man has faced down the power of this force. Some were able to champion it and use it’s power for good. Others, well, others have crumbled and been consumed by it’s power, only to perish to the Dark Side never to be heard from again….

[Dramatic pause.]

We’ve got ballons and cake though, so I thing we’re alright. Dark Side can’t compete with cake.
