Child's Play.

Sara and Phil are here visiting this weekend, and Angus's best friend from home, Dan, is also staying with us. So last night, we proceeded to revert back to being 13-year-olds and took part in a variety of eating contests and an eventful game of Sardines in the dark. It all began with a pair scissors spinning on the island...if the scissors landed with the point towards you, you were in for an eating experience like never before. A recap of the main events: Dan won the cracker contest and the frozen raspberry contest. Phil ate a raw potato and a pear with his hands tied behind his back; this was followed by a shot of Old Grand-dad with his hands still behind his back. Angus ate a spoonful of Crunch Time organic peanut butter with a shot of Sherry vinegar...and Old Grand-dad, I believe. Sara and I pretended to partake in the contests, but we weren't as motivated as the guys. Then, it was on to a game of Sardines in the dark. One person hid somewhere in the house and the others went to find him/her. If you found the hidden person, you hid with them until the last person found the group. I chose to hide in a very creepy and dark corner of the basement, and Angus hid in one of the cabinets. Don't ask me how. I'm still mulling that one over. Anyway, point being...sometimes you just need to let go, laugh, and return to your inner child.
