It was so nice to wake up this morning to see this article in USA Today. (Their circulation is a whopping 2.2 million, baby!)
Will did a phone interview with the reporter a month or so ago. I always try to sit in on these interviews. Not that I "catch" a mistake all that often, but I do tend to learn a thing or two.
Will's strongest statement in the article is that building Splashin' Safari "…is the best business decision we ever made."
(Of course, when he tells this to a travel writer during a park tour, I pipe up, "Next to hiring me, of course!" A bit obnoxious, I admit, but it always gets a laugh. From the writer, anyway…)
Later in the phone interview, Will nearly gave me a heart attack.
"You know, if I had to choose between our coasters or the water park…
"I'd keep Splashin' Safari."
Will — how could you?! Making a choice? And then talking about it?
Don't you know the first rule of Parenting Q&A: I love you all equally.
Happily, such a decision doesn't have to be made.
And no one need know Will's dirty little secret.
