I am sorry to put a damper on your excitement for the weekend, but today I am finding I miss those 'good old days' where we didn't have worries other than lava on the floor.
So pardon me for putting a damper on your joy at rejoicing the favorite day of the week. Though I may get to sleep in tomorrow, I am still dealing with the stresses of the stupid health care crap, and this other one pesky problem.
This would be a better pastime than the other 'game' we made up as a kids. I hate to even admit it, but our game went something like this:
~We used to gather all our toys and miscellaneous things we had, lay them out on the beds in the bedrooms.
~Then 2 of us would try to steal as much as we could without being caught by the 3rd person, the 'cop'.
~If you got caught, you were put 'in jail', which meant you were tied up under our quarter grand piano. (the floor was cold, and it was where the dog slept.)
We played 'shoplifting'!
It was a fun game! It had all the elements of sneak, suspense, and adrenaline, plus the added benefit that I never had to try it in real life.
For some reason, my kids were appalled when I fondly shared this memory. They preferred putting away their toys under the couch cushions, thanks to The Big Comfy Couch.
Oh the carefree days!
What was one favorite made up game you used to play as a kid?
