games we didn’t play on the drives to and from the coast…

August 3rd, 2009

My son: “Quick! Everybody close your eyes and let’s play ‘Who Licked Me?'” (Grandma and me, quick!: “No.”)

My daughter: “We’re playing a game — ‘What’s That Dead Thing?'”) (Me: “That is not a good game.”)

My daughter: “He’s counting up the dead squirrels and I’m counting up the dead cats and we’re going to see who has more by the time we get home.” (Me: “No.”) (Cats would have won. Uh. Lost.)

Both kids: “Woooooo-ah-woooooooo-ah-wooooooooooo-ah-woooooooooooo…” (That’s the “Sound of the Ambulance” game.) (Steve and me: “Please stop.”)

Both kids, again: “Let’s play the ‘See Who Can Be Quiet the Longest” game?” (Me: “Absolutely.”)

The funnest game was the “Sexy” game. We saw a sign for Sexy something… no, not lingerie. Or ladies. “Sexy Lawnmower Repair” or something, coming back from Newport. The kids thought that was funny, because we have a place called “Sexy Coffee” in the neighborhood. “Oooooooh, Sexy Coffee!” So this game is easy — you just add “sexy” to the beginning of everything:

“Sexy Road Repairs Ahead”
“Sexy Spirit Mountain Casino”
“Sexy Elk Jerky”
“Sexy Portland 22 Miles”

You get the idea. Sexy.

How’s your summer?

    Sounds like you’all had a fun trip. It is still sexy hot, and the sexy drought continues down here!

    TOL, wish I could send you the cool breeze that’s floating through my office right now. And I stand corrected: squirrels and birds. Cats still would have won. Lost.

    That’s funny! Road trip “games”! Poor squirrels and cats! We’ve got some “road trip” portions of our trip looming ahead of us, and right now Evan is smack in the middle of his “Mommy, tell me a story” phase (but you gotta insert cute little preschooler voice there for the request, because you cannot just decline that voice!)…. sigh. Break out the portable dvd player!

    Ha! I’m glad others have seen at laughed at the Sexy Coffee sign. I wish I had taken a photo of the handmade sign/banner hung on a house on N. Columbia I saw last week. It said XXX Girls and a phone number. WTF?!
