The kids love playing ring-around-the-rosy. And really, who doesn’t love nursery rhymes about the plague?
Because these are my kids we’re talking about, they have to take the game to the next level and make it a full-contact sport. Naturally.
I was spinning around with Rain Man and Foodie in the kitchen and we were about to “all fall down” when a blur that I can only assume was Cereal Killer came from the living room and barreled in to the middle of our ring. The children were highly amused by this and began a ring-around-the-rosy/human bowling tournament. I backed away slowly so I wouldn’t get involved and so I could figure out the “rules”.
After a few minutes of watching, I determined the rules are as such:
1. The goal is to get in to the middle of the ring before everyone falls down.
2. Bonus points if you head butt your way in and everyone gets knocked down.
3. Don’t talk about Fight Club?
I am not sure why I am shocked. I mean, they made Candyland in to an extreme, full-contact sport once. I need to find them a peewee fall sports league. Doesn’t matter what sport, so long as they can run head first in to things…
