Death of a bouncy house

I regret to inform you that as of 12am this morning the bouncy house is no longer with us. I was running around last night charging batteries and gathering blankets when I noticed. She just didn’t look the same. Even from a distance I knew something was wrong. She was all slumped over in the corner. My instincts kicked in and tried to resuscitate her with mouth to mouth. Despite my best efforts it wasn’t enough. I quickly moved to the already charged (so as not to awaken the kids) air compressor because I knew time was of the essence. She responded and  thought we were in the clear but then I heard the sound no one wants to ever hear coming from a bouncy house, whoosh. It was a fruitless effort. Sure we could keep her hooked up to

the  compressor but what kind of life is that. It just wasn’t fair. So at 12am this morning Feb 2, 2011 I pulled the plug and it was over. I will look back fondly on the 3 days of memories we had with her. She will be laid to rest in a large square box, gently placed in the back of the van and driven back to Toy’s R Us so I can get my $150 back for this stupid,defective piece of sh!t. 🙂

That was great! Love the way your EMT/firefighter background played out here. It made me laugh



Lost and Tired

We only went there because of the "differently abled" catalog. We were looking for specific things we couldn't find else where at least around here.


People buy the crap they shlep….? Personally I don't buy anything there unless ABSOLUTELY necessary. Over priced for sure!

Lost and Tired

Possibly. If the ice clears up before Toys r Us goes out of business. Seriously, how to they stay in business?


um, atleast you can get your money back!!!
