Giant Cardinal Sighting

Thursday, September 29, 2005
In a momentary lapse of judgment, Julie and I let the kids pose for a picture with this giant cardinal-like bird at a theme restaurant in a Pennsylvania strip mall. Sadly, this was the height of our dining experience. Phoebe looks justifiably scared, while Liam smiles innocently. The person inside the costume was WAY too into the role. Not the perky smile on the bird's bill. And the lifeless blue eyes. And all the pieces of flair on the hat, combined with a Hawaiian shirt. I suppose it's better than having a mime for a mascot. Now THAT would be scary.

Bye for now.

That is actuatlly a a store called Red Robin I would imagine (I could be wrong). Anyway, I have actually worn that costume before...not too bad but a little tight around the "manhood"...
