BONUS DAY #266

I always thought one of the biggest reasons kids loved Chick-fil-a was the indoor playground most of them have. I watched something today that stupefied me. A dad with his son (they looked a lot alike) were eating a mid afternoon meal. They weren’t really talking. The dad was really into his sandwich, the son was more into watching the kids play on the indoor playground. I could see his smile and reaction while the kids played and he sat trying to eat with no dialogue with his dad. On their way out the kid was trying to get his dad to allow some time on the playground. I watched as the dad saw the stack of shoes in the shoe “cubby.” The dad literally wriggled up his nose and said, “No, I don’t want you taking off your shoes to go into there.” The kid literally said, “But dad…but dad….but dad…but dad…” (At least another six more times as they walked out the door). I thought about how to the dad is must have been about the sandwich–to the kid it was about the play.
DAD—EVERY DAY IS A BONUS DAY…. COME ON….”OF SUCH IS THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN!”
