It seems to me that I lose more and more stuff now days than I used to. I really don't know why, but I do. If things are not really lost but merely misplaced, then I guess I will find them again if I am meant to!
Do you by any chance remember the names of some of the games we used to play at parties? I'm talking about the games we played before the booze games or those including sex. You know, games like "Spin The Bottle", "Post Office", and "Secret"...I think some actually called that game "Gossip" as well. Good harmless fun, and if memory serves, they were good for a lot of laughs as well.
Another thing I remember, especially for this time of year, was "Bobbing For Apples". Ever done that? Maybe you've played the cousin of bobbing where the apple is hung from a string and then one at a time, the participants try and take a bite from the apple without using the hands. Watching that one was always good for a chuckle or two...
I guess that thinking back on these games and the fun we had back then keeps us from thinking too much about the upcoming events, like TEOTWAWKI (End Of The World As We Know It) and WTSHTF (When The S**t Hits The Fan) ! I have a feeling that it won't be nearly as much fun to watch these events and the games that come from them are not going to be put into a category of party games.
By then parties will probably be a thing of the past as well, except for things like hunting parties, raiding parties and the like. Makes you wonder what kind of warm memories our grand kids will be sitting around discussing many years from now, doesn't it?
The only comfort I get from these thoughts is the knowledge that I will probably be gone when that time comes, having moved on to the next Grand Adventure!
But until those times come, I think we should enjoy some fresh coffee on the patio...and revel in the slightly cooler weather we are having. Want to join me...?
