Too Old For Paintball. My godson, John, turned 16 this weekend. For a party his dad provided an afternoon of paintball at Fox Paintball. John invited my eleven year-old son and I to join the fun along with a dozen other sixteen year-olds. It was going great until somebody had the bright idea of playing a version of "Capture the Flag" in which you are not out of the game once you get shot. You're just inelgible to carry the flag any farther. But only if you get shot while carrying the flag. That was a stupid idea. My body is reminding me today.
