Diary of a Wimpy Kid

March 22, 2010

My┬áson has been reading the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series. He has also read a few parts that he found funny to me. One was about the Wimpy Kid’s father, who is clearly a miniature wargamer. The father keeps trying to escape to his Civil War “set up” in the basement (furnace room). We went to the movie last Friday and there was the father in one scene painting his miniatures with one of those giant magnifying glasses! If more Wimpy Kid movies are made we might get to see the father’s “set up” and see him extol the virtues of his favorite regiment to family members, who are bored to death by his hobby
