...flat. The sauce on their pizzas is somewhat bland, the toppings sparse and low grade, but when one brings the children there for a birthday party, one can imagine the shortcomings of their food can be overlooked, as the kiddies are there to play and probably could care less what they're eating. Also noted is the fact that comparatively speaking, Chuckee's is somewhat expensive, but attempts to offset that food cost by giving you a few free gaming and ride tokens with your food purchase.

The Burlap Man

By LVera, published on Apr 18, 2012

... mirror, I figured out a plan.My face was no longer the one I loved.It was battered, full of stuffing and full of hate.I wanted them to die, I wanted them to glow.So as they fluttered around my body, attached by their mouths,I lit a match.But their fluttering extinguished the tiny fury.I tried again.And then again.It only angered them.They had finished eating me and left me alone with my cotton insides. I don't know why they had not eaten all of me, but now it didn't matter. I couldn't move and I couldn't feel anything.At this moment, not feeling anything is better than feeling everything.

Sure, there are some kids who are overweight. Some of it is due to poor eating habits. Some due to poor eating habits combined with no exercise. Some of it is genetics. Hopefully, people don't start putting their babies on diets in fear of having an obese child. If I had done that to my 15-year-old, he might have disappeared by the time he thinned out!
