Dear Sea World,The Kid has a basketball tournament in San Diego next weekend and San Diego has a Sea World - yay!
Who doesn't love a place to get close to super awesome marine animals without the possibility of being eaten by a shark?
So of course I go to your website to see what kind of exhibits you have, since it's been a few years since my last visit and guess what I found out?
It costs $70 per person to get in (plus $14 for parking, plus however much it costs to get lunch).
I can only assume that this price includes my very own real live penguin to take home with me.
I mean, it doesn't say on the website that everyone gets a penguin, but I can't imagine another reason why it would cost so much.
Of course, with the economy being as gross as it is, I'm a teensy bit worried that building and maintaining a penguin habitat in the yard might be a bit cost prohibitive, so maybe we could opt out of the penguin and just pay a more reasonable entrance fee - you know, something that doesn't equal 3 weeks worth of groceries for a family of 3? Let me know before I try to sell The Kid on a trip to Ikea instead.
