Tonight was a mom’s night out with my local moms group. This is what I love about mom’s night out. It is always a random mix of people. Rarely have I gone where it is all the “usual” people I hang out with. Throw board games in the mix and fun is bound to ensue. No we didn’t play twister (although that definitely would have been interesting). Still there was plenty of wine and chocolate (yipee) and here are some things I learned this evening.
Whenever I go to a night event where food is present, I eat everything in site. Tonight my strategy was to eat a full meal before hand so I would be so full I wouldn’t eat all night long. This strategy sucked. Apparently a full tummy isn’t the deterrent I hoped it would be against the piles of chocolate munchies and Mexican dip. Seriously, I can’t imagine how full I would have to be to avoid chocolate and Mexican food. Next time I will have to just starve myself for days before to justify the binge I partook in tonight.
Apples to Apples is a very funny game.It is even funnier when in the first round someone throws out a Britney Spears card. This continues to be the answer everyone throws out for the rest of the word associations for the rest of the game. If you have never played this game, this makes no sense to you, but I don’t much care about that at midnight when I am trying to get a post in before my eyes close.
I discovered some interesting facts about people that might not have been revealed without a bit of alcohol and board game questions. If you were there, you know to which I refer. If you weren’t and you are in my mom’s club, you missed out on some juicy information. That will teach you to stay home when there is a MNO.
This is not new information, but I am a highly competitive board game player. Even in games where I have no control over the outcome. I truly think this is because I have less than zero athletic ability. Seriously…you may recall the bowling confession. I also enjoy trash talking during board games. My husband particularly enjoys that. Yeah, actually not so much. Even so you should know I will kick your you know what in pick up sticks.
I have decided we should really have more board game nights. I truly don’t understand people who don’t enjoy it. To me that’s like not enjoying Christmas. What kind of person doesn’t enjoy a rousing round of Taboo? I try not to be judgemental, but I think there might be something seriously wrong with a person who isn’t up for an evening spent acting out the lyrics to “You Give Love a Bad Name?” Which camp are you in? If you like me are a board game aficionado what game do you think tops all others? I’m up for anything that involves pop culture. My keen ability to store useless information in my brain combined with my need to check People.com 3 times a day to keep up on Britney’s latest escapades render me unbeatable. Oh so sad, but oh so true. I just dare you to take me on.
