I Demand a Refund!

Years before Elliot was born, Kelly and I came across a photo booth at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. It promised to tell you what your children would look like.

The booth took pictures of both of us and then used sophisticated technology to determine the exact appearance of our offspring. After whirring for a few minutes, the machine spit out a photo, which seemed to indicate that we would give birth to a sullen Latina girl.



Now that Elliot is getting older, it's becoming increasingly obvious that he will probably never look like this. (It doesn't help matters that he's a boy.)



Unfortunately, some fine print may thwart my attempts to sue the Boardwalk for damages. As you can see, it says, "For amusement only."



Apparently there was concern that the Boardwalk photo booth would be used for family planning.
