Your Kids Are Bored. Here’s Some Dinosaurs



Dear Mom and Dad,

What have you done for me lately? Do you know that Christmas was an entire month ago? Most of the presents you bought for me are either broken, lost or were clothes to begin with. I'm questioning if I still want to be part of this family. 'Cuz I'm really bored.

Yesterday you asked me if I wanted to go to the zoo. I reminded you that we went last week and also that I hate flamingos -- they are stupid and don't do anything.

How about dinosaurs? I love, love, love dinosaurs and would choose to see some over some dumb pink birds any day. But before you launch into some teachable moment about how dinosaurs lived millions of years ago and do I know what "extinction" means, let me tell you about Erth's Dinosaur Petting Zoo which is coming to the Van Duzer Theatre on Tuesday, Jan. 29, at 7 p.m.

Yes, dinosaurs.

I know they’re puppets but, trust me guys, these are rad. Giant, life-like, eyeball-demanding monsters lumbering and flying through lush inflatable environments. When you were passed out on the couch, I used your iPhone to find this YouTube clip where Erth’s Tyrannosaurus Rex ate some kid. I want to be that kid, bad, so take me or we are going to have issues.

Oh, I’ll probably learn something too. That will make you feel less pain when shelling out $25 for you to get in. Luckily, it’s only $12 for us kids. Maybe you can wait in the car.

If you need to check up on anything I’m saying that you don’t believe, check out or call 826-3928. Report back by Tuesday. Don't blow this.

-- The Kids
