The Tealight Game

After dinner, Sarah taught me a new game. It's pretty complex, this game. The name of it changed several times during the explanation, and I don't remember what she finally landed on. Here is how you play - it's pretty fast-paced so try to keep up.



OK Mommy here is the new game. Whoever ends up with both candles at the end wins. I decide who gets the candles and OH LOOK! I won the first round! So, here's what you do, you have to...slide the candles back and forth and I'll just...see here's what you...Mommy, you're cheating. I know because I made it up! Now's the time we add another candle. So here we go and...OH MOMMY YOU WON! I'm so happy for you. OK I'm going to win this round so pay attention.


From what I can tell, the object of the game is to, um, wait I had this, it's...I thought it involved sliding the tealights across the table at the same time and trying to smash them into each other but then she pulled out the blow-up cow that the guy at the cheese counter at Alon's gave her this morning, which she has named Dirty Diana. I'm not sure what Dirty Diana really brought to the game, but at this point, from what I could discern, I was no longer in the game. Stupid cow. I hate this game.
