Dad builds his kid a pirate-ship bedroom. Wow. I have to admit, that's pretty cool. Still, you know that the only reason this guy built that for his kid is because his wife wouldn't let him build it for himself. Life is inherently cruel in one particular way: when you're a kid, you have these incredible fantasies of all the cool stuff you would do if you had the resources, but you don't. When you're an adult, all those fantasies are inappropriate and childish, even though you could now actually have them. Occasionally some adult breaks the mold, like here. He's a huge pussy though, because instead of doing it for himself (like you know he wanted to), he churned out a kid so he'd have an excuse. Lame. I had lots of these ideas as a kid, but I admit that I haven't brought many of them to fruition. I decided that when I grew up I would get an Atari 5200 and every game there was for it, and, uh, yay emulators. Of course now we have WoW, so that's kind of a moot point. FOCUS: What childhood fantasies did you have? Have you achieved them now that you are an adult? If not, why not?
