The grandkids are saying with us through the new years. They are always a treat and they find great ways to entertain themselves because we (me) are to old to try and keep up with them.
J-Man plays computer games. Bug reads and plays with MeMaw (Judy.) Judy has been their best play pal since they were old enough to have their first diaper changed.
So today, with the temperature in the 30’s and a slight breeze, the little shits - uh - darlings wanted to go for a walk. It was so enjoyable with our pink cheeks and snotty noses. We did about 2 miles thought the woods and around the subdivision before frostbite drove us back home.
But I did get to enjoy the fruits of my teachings when Bug flipped my ear, which was frozen solid. Note to self. Don’t tell them anything else about my childhood living in squalor and in desperate needs of ways to entertain our selves.
However one of the more positive things they do is make up games and plays and stuff. Aggravates the shit out of me…uh I love the way their minds play out.
So today the little shits, uh, kiddies decided to try public service as a means of torturing…I mean entertaining themselves.
So for lunch and dinner the kiddies opened a restaurant, Mario’s Game Lounge.
J-Man, the self titled Technical Specialist, went on the pc made up and printed out menus.
Bug got a little note book and goes to each of us and takes our order.
In the kitchen the orders are hanging by clothes pins from the cabinets like a short order restaurant.
I had a choice of hamburgers, tacos, salad, spaghetti, grilled cheese, grilled ham and cheese with a dessert of pecan or sweet potato pie or rice krispies balls.
When we sat at the table, Bug brings us our plates (and a little chime on the oven goes off every few minutes signifying another meal is ready to serve) and she brings us utensils, napkins, salt and pepper or any other condiment we might need.
The chef, Judy, served what ever she made regardless of the order. She loves Gordon Ramsey and his culinary management.
For example, off the menu I ordered a taco and got an empty taco shell. I ordered a cheeseburger and got a stale bun with spaghetti sauce for hamburger meat covered with diced cheese. I would have been better off ordering spaghetti from the start, cause that’s what I got. That’s all Chef Judy made.
I don’t see a long longevity for Mario’s Game Lounge. But the kiddies will live to annoy…entertain us again. After all, we have them for 6 more days.
But I have to say,begrudgely, it was fun.
