What better theme for this weeks Caption Challenge than my daughter showing me up in an arcade? That’s right, SmartCanuckers — you’re staring into the bold awesome face of Jim. With me in the photo is my daughter Julia, aged 2 1/2. As a family we’d decided to take a trip to the arcades in Niagara Falls two summers back, and Julia took to it like a pro. Now she’s 4 and can talk circles around me about Sonic the Hedgehog.
I’ve created a monster. 😉
So there we have it! What caption do you have for my daughters mad drumming skills making me look the fool?
omg like he’s really asking for it, and what have i got? NOTHING. NAHDA..
“Jim’s 5 minutes of fame”
“jim gets some well needed exercise pummelting helpless hedgehogs”
“Dad, um.. my turn?”
Too cute. I love the photo. Well the only thing that I can come up with is. “SONIC DRUMMER” lol.
Umm Dad, you gotta, nope not, ummm, yeah umm, nope not that – oh just gimme the sticks and I’ll show you!
Julia: Finish Him!
Jim: You know back in my day, games only cost a quarter and we only had joysticks and the graphics were 8-bit and we had to walk 5 miles to the arcade in the mall… uphill… in the snow… even in summer.
The new age of Father-Daughter bonding!
OK, here comes the drum solo from Inna-Gadda-Da-Vida.
Uggg me Jim….me hit mating song…..she want a mommy
I just have to add that my son is OBSESSED with sonic the hedgehog and it’s incredibly hard to find sonic toys or clothes in Canada (some on ebay, but it’s not a deal!). Batman, superman and spiderman are everywhere… geez… Anyways, we were in Sears last night and my son found a Sonic X T-shirt for $6.99 in the boys clearance racks. He was in heaven. He’ll probably never take it off.
Wait a second….
OK, now Daddy’s ready to play.
This really is a 2-person game!
Little Jimmy Foo Foo,
Hopping through the arcade
Scooping up the hedgehogs
And boppin’ ’em on the head
“Daaaaad…when can I play?”
“…just one more turn, honey…Daddy’s GOTTA beat level one…” (*or she’ll never let me live it down!!*)
Scott – too funny!
Jim, traumetized years ago by a nasty incident with a gopher with sharp teeth, finally gets virtual revenge against small woodland creaturs.
See, this is why I take Daddy to the arcade…
Julia (typing): g2g, pos
Caption-> ” cost of arcade game, .25 cents….losing repeatedly to a two year old…Priceless. “
