do you ever find yourself involved in an activity that makes you chuckle? OR, involved in an activity that brings out an “i can’t believe i even care about winning this” attitude?
well, i find myself answering YES to both of these questions. and i find for me that the questions can be applied to the same activity. this occured just 24 hours ago….
while my husband and his sisters boyfriend were involved in a guitar hero battle, i found myself locked in a fierce game of OPERATION with our friend, stephen. i, of course, had played somewhat recently with my littles. stephen, of course, had not played in years.
so, the bank was set up, the ‘doctor and specialist’ cards distributed, all of the ‘insides’ of the poor patient properly placed, and the game buzzer lit and ready. we readied ourselves over the operating table and the battle began.
now, as a kid it was sort of fun to hit the metal sides that solicit the loud buzz and ‘electric’ shock. as a competitive adult, it is not. you would have thought we were doing surgery on a real, live human. our patients bread basket, funny bone, charlie horse, brain freeze, adams apple, and so on were removed one by one with the precision of a practiced surgeon. the ankle “impossible to get it on the first time” rubberband was last and had become our nemesis. after a back and forth battle for a bit, stephen eventually got it.
it was time to count the goods…. da da da dum…….. $3400 to $3900… who won???
me!! i am now considering the dilemma of how i missed my calling in surgery. hee hee…..
so, when you get the chance, find a friend and sit down to a good ol’ fashioned game of OPERATION.
it’s guaranteed to bring a smile to your face — especially if you win!! 🙂
