Today I brought my oldest son (the Association) for his visit to the CN tower in Toronto, ON. It’s been a long month for the youngster and the First Lady and I thought that this would be a good man-date for the two of us to partake in. (It didn’t hurt that today was teacher appreciation day and the Association and I were comped at the door either)
For the most part the two of us thoroughly enjoyed our time at the tower. However their was a few antsy moments when we came across the glass floor. I have to admit that I myself am not a huge fan of heights. I’ve always fancied the notion that gravity isn’t my biggest ally. So I generally don’t venture too high up the pole. It would appear that my young offspring has been wired genetically to match the wussyness (much like any sports analyst I’m in the business of making up words) of his old man. He wasn’t that big of a fan of this see through floor either.
Here’s the following exchange between the Association, the CN Tower tour guide and by way of insult – me.
CN TOWER TOUR GUIDE: “Don’t worry folks, the glass floor can support 200 hippos and it won’t break.”
THE ASSOCIATION: “You better not go out there Daddy, the floor will break.”
It solid comedic timing by my young son. I couldn’t have been more proud. Well done son, well done.
