hi cathy, i nearly fell off my chair from laughing too hard - this has got to be the funniest post i've read in a very long time! i found myself nodding enthusiastically at several points, especially when the grumpy grizzly bear rears his head, as i've got one of them living right here too ;)


J: Oh yes, then you know how funny it is to get them to play Pictionary! This is how bad it got: during round two of Pictionary last Saturday, Hubby grabbed my pencil and threw it away so I couldn't draw when we turned the hourglass over.


LOL, I couldn't help but laugh. My husband and I cannot play backgammon together, I've only beaten him once and it was during the game I was teaching him how to play, for 3 years now he has one EVERY game. I get to the point where I'll call it a game halfway through because it's obvious I'm losing. I'm embarrassed by the childish antics the game brings out in me, but not as embarrassed as I am frustrated!


Darla, what IS it about board games that brings out the sublime and ridiculous in people? I'm a better LOSER than a winner (when I win, I'm an awful human being)! Speaking of frustrated, my mom was once playing Monopoly with my youngest sister and brother. Halfway through, she got mad, accusing them of colluding, then kicked the board over, marched out of the room fuming and yelled over her shoulder, "I'm telling your dad on you!" MY MOM. Secret to peaceful family life: don't own a Monopoly board...


Love it. This reminds me of being at a workshop yesterday and someone brought out a bag of the new candy coated hershey kisses. We were wishing we had the old board game "Sorry" so that we could play with the candy and the winner would take home the rest of the bag.


Fran, oh see, candy is just no good when competitive people get together. It's not about getting candy, it's about bragging rights. Sigh. We never seem to grow up do we?! :-)
