Well Intentioned Disaster I

This is my first well intentioned disaster since I started the blog.  You see, I always planning things that seem to somehow go slightly wrong– not on purpose or anything. It’s just I have a talent for messing things up.

The latest disaster involves a trip to the circus.  I bought five tickets– one for me, one for each kid, one for The Captain and one for a friend.  I THOUGHT I purchased them for today June 15th Saturday!  It turns out, I somehow managed to buy them for TOMORROW– June 16th Father’s Day.  Now, the problem is The Captain hates any and all things to do with child centered activities– this includes birthday parties, kids entertainment shows, Disneyland, Legoland, any child theme park.  I have learned this is not atypical when it comes to dads.  None-the-less, I somehow or other got The Captain to say he would go to the circus on the 15th.  But now, that I bought the tickets for FATHER’S DAY…well that’s another story.

Just another of my well intentioned disasters.
