Yes, it's true. I'm back. So anyway, way back in December, as soon as my birthday celebration was over, my mom turns to me while making dinner and says "You should start having a game night every month. It'll be great."
and I said "Yeah, that would be so awesome. I'll try that." A few weeks go by, and then I start telling people that we'll do it in February. The day comes, I wear myself out making the house look respectable, and what do you know, no-one shows up or even calls to apologize. Lo and behold, I had chosen a date and time when everyone was busy! but that ended alright,'cause my mom took me out for ice cream as consolation. So then, I let it slide, and a couple weeks later I start telling the same people "We're not doing it in March, (because of the trip to TAC I wrote about in my previous post) but the game night is on in April. Ping-Pong tournament." I was very clear about it. I must of told each of them at least twice, maybe four times. Lo and behold! On the final Friday night before the date I chose, I discover that NONE OF THEM TOLD THEIR MOMS! HOW ARE THEY GOING TO GET THERE, THEN? So the day (Yesterday) comes, I wear myself out cleaning the house, again, and this time... surprise, surprise! Someone showed up 20 minutes early! and brought an extra guy along! By the time that I had designated, all but two of them had arrived, and those two were 1. busy at a job, and 2, had simply forgotten. So for the next three hours, we played Ping-pong on the dining room table.Acting on her own suggestion, my mom the bread baker provided a self-serve pizza bar. The homemade dough was SO GOOD! IT WAS GREAT! I think I'll eat another one later... anyway, the tournament was won by a guy who refers to himself as AK-47, who was unanimously considered the best player there. Next month, Chess!
