Today my family and I went to Medieval Times and it was a good way to spend a Sunday afternoon. It was part of my mom’s birthday gift. She was probably the one that enjoyed it the most, even more than the kids.
It is located inside a mall which seemed out of place but once inside, you don’t feel like you are inside a mall.
My only complain was that, to maintain the medieval atmosphere, we had to eat all our food with our hands. I’m still cleaning chicken from under my nails. If I ever go back, I’m definitely bringing a fork and knife in my purse. My sister, that doesn’t even eat pizza with her hands, was horrified.
There was a lot of flag waving, king speeches, knight fighting and horses dancing.
Our knight was the yellow and red knight. I have a sore throat from cheering him on but he lost the big tournament. Oh well, you can’t win them all.
The whole time I was thinking, what are these people like in their regular life. Do they leave for work dressed like this? Where do they keep the horses? I can imagine him at a party and someone asks “So, what do you do for a living?” and he says “Oh, I’m a knight.” Funny.
