Measured my height today, shocked to discover I’m over six feet tall. My entire adult life I have been 5’9”, but today I was flying high. Was playing GOTG and a 4 year old boy walks over and parks himself by the left flipper button and is leaning on my arm and hanging over the glass to watch me play. When I started Groot MB and three balls shot out Groot’s mouth, the boy let out a “whoa mister that’s cool”. So then his 5 year old sister comes over and wedges herself between where I am currently standing and the right flipper and starts watching.

So I started locking balls as I asked who wanted to try the next mb? They both were kind of quiet but the girl looked brave and she was primed. So I locked the last ball and told her to put her hands on the flippers and off she went playing groot mb with a large smile on her face. When the balls drained I got back on the machine and setup another groot mb and told the boy it was his turn. He was a little double flipper and didn’t get how to play, so his sis is yelling at him what to do and not to do. She told him to quit mashing the flippers like retard. Anyways he got to play and really liked it.

Later the mom comes over to collect them and reminded them to thank me, which I received two of. That was the highlight of my day, and I felt over six foot tall standing there in my boots.

Kids in pic are not the ones, but you get the idea.

Pretty sure the girl was hooked on pinball when she left. She showed some talent and came back with a dollar for Iron Man, so she clearly knows where to find money and can negotiate like an adult.

Sounds like she's going to have her brother whipped into shape as well.

Crazy, as I've never been over six feet tall either, until I purchased this magical new pair of shoes.

You don't look that tall in your Pinside avatar picture.
Kudos to you, although that will never happen to me because I just don't like kids.
