Schools out for summer!

There Will Be Games

Last day of school for my little spawn. We looked over her report card. Told her how proud we were of her. Gave her a little gift, and then packed her off to camp Granmama's for the week. WOO HOO.

Tonight was dinner and games with Francie. Tomorrow is a suddenly planned and hastily thrown together game party at Francie's. I'm making my special recipe chip dip. You dump this bag of powder into a bowl of sour cream and stir it. Al is on beer run duty. We still don't know who is coming, but we think we'll have at least 6 of us.

Francie was trying to get Al to call J to find out if he was coming. She wouldn't call herself, because she was afraid the wife would take it the wrong way if some strange woman called and asked if J could come over and play. Are we still in Jr. High or what?

After dinner we taught Francie Glory to Rome. She thought it sucked.
"Too many cards. Not enough bits," she said.

"This from the woman who was playing PR last night. Real nice cardboard chits in that one."

"It has cubes," she replied.

"You want cubes, baby. I'll give you you cubes. Where's that old RISK set?"

But she took a pass on the RISK and we played Rails of Europe instead.
Francie started fading around 9pm. By the end of the game she was sleepy and stupid. She just let me steal cubes from her. Al won anyway. His winning move was humping the bag for two yellow cubes. Francie said that she knew we were going to make fun of her after she left. I told her that we wouldn't. I'd just blog about her so everyone would know how lame she was.

Just kidding , you know I love you.

Hopefully Francie will sleep in tomorrow. If she doesn't, she may start kicking us out at some unholy early hour and we will have to have the after party over here. That means I would have to clean the kitchen . Bleh!
