The Hangover

I was going through the kids' stuff for Caitlyn's toy sale and had a bunch of games piled on the floor to weed through. Even in this age of Nintendo DS and Wii, the kids still love to play board games. Clue, Monopoly, Snakes and Ladders, and Sorry. Those are some of their favourites.

I remember my favourites as a child were the Game of Life (my friend Linda and I would try to stuff as many kids as possible into our little cars), PayDay, and Risk (what 10 year old wasn't into world domination?)

Anyway, back to the games piled on the floor. I really didn't pay too much attention to the Hangman game laying there. I certainly never paid any attention to the cover of the game. But then my husband Paul, who was sitting beside me suggested that I REALLY look at the cover. Fine... there's 2 kids on it, a skeleton, and some letters. "LOOK at the word they are trying to guess, Jenny," he insisted.

I had to laugh. Maybe that's why the 2 kids are looking so perplexed! At least at their age I hope they were puzzled! What... was their mother supposed to give them a hint like "you know, what Daddy was after he went out drinking with his friends last night..."

Maybe video games aren't that bad after all....
