Kids Eat Free

My wife calls me at work and says: "Kids eat free at Las Palapas from 5:00PM - 8:00PM. So that is what I'm doing for dinner tonight."

So I reply with: "Kids eat free at home too."

It was like playing wall-ball with a beanbag. It fell flat.

"So do you want us to pick you up and then go eat?"

As exciting as sitting in a restaurant at dinner time with my three kids, her cousin and her two kids, and the restaurant and all their freeloading kids, I decided to let me wife take the brunt of this one.

"No thanks. just bring me something."

"Ok, we'll pick you up when we're finished."

The good, I get to have a usually good mexican food dinner. The bad, since she took them to dinner, I'll not be able to eat until 11:30 tonight on account I'll have the clean up.

Ironically, I would have had to deal with both the dinner and cleanup if I would have chosen to go with them. Was this a selfish choice. Yes. But I also know that I didn't want to keep my pregnant wife and hungry kids waiting for me to get out of work. Because who knows what would have happened if I was 2 minutes late coming out the door?
