I'm getting cranky in my old age, but somebody's gonna poke an eye out with all the kids brandishing weapons at the Medieval Fair.
First of all, anyone over the age of 12 who attends the Medieval Fair is, by definition, a little bit mentally, you know, not quite right. So the fact that they're all buying 6-foot steel swords is not too comforting. The next time they lose a Dungeons and Dragons game or get dissed by the Goth chick in Geometry class...I don't wanna be around for that.
Meanwhile, the little kids, the 5- and 6- and 7-year-olds running around swinging the plastic and wooden swords at each other. Where are their parents?
Jennifer and I don't allow that, of course. We limit our kids to small machetes, daggers, and cross-bows.
