St. Louis Science Center, Cyberville: Helloween

By the God(esse)s, what a day. This is the single most tiring day I've ever had at the St. Louis Science Center.

It started out with having to make it through the obstacle course of the stock room- worse than usual, I don't usually have to clear jumps to make it through. I managed to clear the course without injury, and proceeded to Cyberville.

Apparently, last weeks halloween festivities have now been spread throughout the Science Center, and guess who gets to run a game?

Highlights of the day:

* Early closing
* Three hours of standing up, with five minutes of break time
* Getting to share in the candy left over in the last bag
* Juvinile delinquents: children who steal prizes. Count: 12
* Repeat offender: cute little five-year-old black girl tried five times. The last time, I escorted her by hand (per Science Center policy, guiding her by her shoulder) to her mother. Reply? "DON'T YOU TOUCH HER!" Geez, lady, she was stealing our stuff!
* Small children running away screaming from me; infants looking very oddly at me (This isn't all that out-of-the-ordinary for me, actually.)
* Grand larceny attempt: Visitor attempted to steal a five-pound bag of candy- got run down by another visitor, who snatched and returned said produce
* Bean bags to the groin: 3
* Bean bags to the face: 10
* Obcenities uttered: 0
* Attempts of mine to magically influence something (or psychically, if you don't consider willworking "magic"): 9
* Successes for above: 7 (five shots that should have missed but didn't, one unopenable bag opened with ease, convincing small child to not steal. Plus two unverifiable results of a child suddenly "getting the idea.")
* Pieces of candy smuggled home: 7
* Pieces of candy stolen without game play by visitors (approx.): 41
* Times I fell down: 0
* Times I actually snarled/growled at someone: 8
* Times I accidentally hit Erik in the butt, instead of returning bean bag bees to the bean bag bee bin: 3
* Times he offered extra points to visitors for nailing me instead of a target: 3
* Times this offer was redeemed: 3
* % chance that I will, after writing this, go upstairs and collapse on my bed: 100
