Thought provoking questions???

Many of you have asked how my reunion weekend went - it was wonderful!!! Despite the fact that I suffered from a little technology withdrawal (there was no TV , internet, or cell service - it drove me crazy my cell constently was "searching"), we all had a great time! It's been a long time since I laid in bed and just snickered in the dark - I guess that comes with hanging out with girlfriends and staying up way past my bedtime.

Saturday morning brought us out into the wilderness of Arkansas. The couple, whose cabin we stayed in, led the hike. I was completely thankful that they took it easy on us and that we didn't have to do any MAJOR climbing - I mean, I saw beautiful scenery that I definitely wouldn't have wanted to miss, but I also don't like the idea of having to exert a lot of extra energy to do so - lol. Here are some pictures I captured along the way.











Saturday night we played a series of games including Farkel (dice game of chance) The funny thing is growing up I called "Rock, paper, scissors" (or scissors, paper, rock - as Maria called it - lol) by the name Farkel, so it was interesting to actually learn the "right" game. We also played game called Zobmondo. It was a game of "Would you rather...?" Most of the questions were either down right disgusting (Would you rather lick the sugar off the sweaty armpit of an obese woman or syrup from her linty belly button?) or down right ridiculous ("Would you rather bite the curb and get kicked in the back of the head or get a paper cut on your eyeball?"). There were some thought-provoking questions, ("Would you rather find condoms or "uppers" in your 14 year old's room?") that we discussed for a while till we decided the conversation had become TOO serious for this fun weekend. The part of the game that made it the most fun though were that of questions like "Would you rather have no depth perception or hear everything 8.2 seconds after it is said?" We, being slightly drunk and definitely lacking in sleep, would then ask each other things and attempt to wait 8.2 seconds before responding. Stupid, I know...but hilarious all the same.

So if you can't tell... I thoroughly enjoyed my weekend of seclusion, but the next time I ask "What did you say?" (as I do quite often) just realize it is just my 8.2 seconds catching up... not my lack of attention - lol

  1. I am SO glad that you have joined the blogging world! :) And I enjoyed reading your first two posts. I'll admit that I giggled at the first one. NOT that I could do either of those things or even think about it, your stories were just so well written and funny.

  2. What a fun time that must have been! 8.2 seconds is a long time, if you think about it. I can just hear you laughing, too! I'm glad you got a chance to do that!
