Something beginning with b

March 10, 2013

We had a longish drive home, and the children were playing I Spy.  They’d all had several turns, and Pearl said, “I spy with my little eye, something beginning with S”.

Fainjin and Babess took several guesses.  “Nope!” said Pearl.  “I’ll give you a hint, it’s inside the car.”

They each took several more guesses.  After a loooong time, Pearl smugly revealed, “Ha! I was tricking you!  It’s not inside the car!  Guess again.”

“Pearl?” Babess said wearily.  “When you see this bored look on my face, it means: I’m bored.”

Game, set and match to baby sister.

Let’s play “mindreader”

May 27, 2012

Fainjin proposed a fun game to The Dad after dinner.  “Dad!  I will say a letter, and you say a word starting with that letter.  OK?”

“OK,” his father agreed.



“No, that wasn’t the answer.”

“But fish starts with F…”

“But it wasn’t the answer I was thinking of.  Try again.”

Oh dear, poor Dad.  It was going to be hard to win that one.  But at least he had triumphed earlier in the day, emerging from a game with Pearl to proclaim, “Yes!!! I can beat a nine-year-old who has never played chess before!”

Let’s see who wins the second game, though.
