Today's thefridayfive: Fun and Games

1. When you were a child, what was your favorite game to play?


2. What is your favorite game to play right now?


3. Can you share a good story about playing with others or yourself?

My friend Enrique likes to play Monopoly. LOVES to play, in fact. Loves way to MUCH. I consented to play with him once and only once, because once was enough. The man is so competitive and has all these special rules developed by his family's habit of playing in pitched-battle mode, it drove me nuts. A while later he was over here with Kristina, Daniel and Caleb... and the game. He wanted to play and I opted out, decided to bake cookies instead. By the end of the game, Kristina had dropped out and Daniel was about to punch Enrique out, or die of laughter. Sorry, it's a GAME!

4. What do you do for play time fun now?

Play dress-up.

5. If you were able to invent a game, what would you call it?

Catch the Fart

Because I'm actually 5.

Have had a sore throat for three days and for the past two days, stuffed up head, earache, a sneezing fits. Either I have a cold or bad allergies.

*sneezes 8 times in a row*

Ack. On several occasions today I missed crossing the street because I was sneezing when the "WALK" sign went on and had to wait for my fit to end. That's the trouble with always sneezing by the dozen. I bet some passersby thought I was having a very loud seizure, or maybe barking. Then I'd stop, go across the street and sneeze a few more times.
