"Into the Woods II" - acrylic on aquabord, 6" x 6". Available on etsy.
In yesterday's post we watched adorable kiddos tame a wild bear. It reminded me again of the importance of play. Now play looks a lot different when you're my age, especially when it involves other people.
In our house, board games are a championship event, with smack talk months in advance, and throw down taunts a recurring theme. Alliances are formed, strategies honed, and seating preferences determined. Certain alliances are blocked (my middle sister and I are not allowed to be on the same team, as we are unstoppable) and others are encouraged (youngsters are teamed up with mentors).
This year, the new game was Exploding Kittens. Yep, that's right. Kittens that explode. It is as irreverent as Cards Against Humanity but more silly, more ridiculous and more likely to be repeated for days afterward. My husband and I are still calling "NOPE" on anything we don't want to do. My son is infatuated with a card featuring a cartoon baby owl smoking crack. Oh yes. It's that kind of a game.

Well, let's just say there is mischief, limerick and malarkey, especially when you go into the woods.
