vacation: day 2

so today . . . i slept LATE! but that's ok, because i am on vacation!

i don't know where the day went. all i know is that it is 11:50 p.m. and my mom, diandra, and i are sitting at the dining room table playing clue. we are so tired. my eyes are puffy and dry. and yet, here we sit, playing clue.

clue is diandra's favorite game. but the problem with clue is that you cannot play it with just two people. so even though all i want to do is let my body fall into bed, i play clue. playing this game at this time of night is not working out too well. we can't remember whose turn it is. we haven't played in so long, that we have all forgotten our "system" for keeping track of who has which cards. we are not very good at cheating--which we will all do if given the opportunity. (except maybe for diandra, who had the perfect opportunity to cheat, and yet resisted. yes, she is the good child!) wrong answers were erroneously given. wrong assumptions were made. it was a hot mess! and when i say "hot," i mean hot, as it was over 100 degrees here today--and oregon houses typically do not have air conditioning . . .

still, there was a lot of laughing going on. confusion was labeled as cheating. cheating was disguised as confusion. certain words popped out of more than one mouth. diandra won both games, and my mom and i had ice cream, so everyone went to bed happy.

but we made a new rule--no more clue after 11:00 p.m. we need to try to have our fun earlier in the day so we can get some sleep!
