Lessons learned at the ComicCon

Kaylee's getting one last run in the Spider-Man costume today. It barely fits, but we've donned it to better blend with Arizona's geeks.

We're surrounded by Stormtroopers, ninjas and a variety of overweight teens dressed in strange outfits that look more like pajamas than costumes.

I know I'm a dork, I dragged my family to a third-tier comic book convention after all, but there's just something about being surrounded by these people that makes you feel so much better about yourself.

And I think that's the lesson I hope Kaylee takes away from all of this.

You may not have a lot of money, you may not love your job, you may not be happy with the hand life has dealt you. But at least you're not an 45-year-old man dressed as what appears to be a cross between a kitty and a Japanese call girl.

Michael-

What does Racheal doe while you are at these things? Is it a study in human behavior that she finds fascinating?

Don't tell anyone ... but Rae is a bit of a dork herself.

I better not hear anymore Star Wars dorkworm jokes if this is what your family does on the weekends.
