So we all three packed up and headed out after lunch. Max brought his DS and I shoved my current sock project into my purse on our way out the door. Once we arrived and signed in and settled ourselves in the very small and crowded waiting room, I pulled out my sock only to find that the needle I needed to actually do the knitting had been left on the table at home.
Max played his DS. I pulled a notebook out of my purse and Frank & I played Hangman. We may have never played Hangman together before – it was hilarious. Eventually Max turned off his DS and played too. Despite the fact that we were stuck in a tiny, rather stuffy and crowded waiting room, we had fun.
We would never have thought to play Hangman at home. There are too many computers and video games and projects clamoring for our attention. But with little else than a pen and paper to entertain us, we got a chance to remember how much fun it is just to play together.
