The Stupidest Game Ever

The next time you're ready to tear your hair out with the kids in the car... play this.

On our way back recently from a trip up north, our travails took us off the highway and onto the back roads in the Ithaca area.  My wife would like you to know, my decision to avoid construction cost us at least a half hour in time.  Anywho, after putting the kibosh on some minor violence between the kids in the back of the van, this is the conversation that followed:

Me: Settle down! Hey, look at the cows in the field out there.  Wow.  Doesn't that make you guys want to try and take a nap or something?

Leah: Hey Ali, let's play a game.  I'll count to 3 and the first one to say "Cows!" wins.

Julie (grinning):  Oh, Leah that's the stupidest game ever.

(Long pause)

Leah: 1... 2... 3--

All:  COWS!

Someone counting to three and all of us screaming "Cows!" continued for about 5 miles.  By the way, it is the stupidest game ever, but if you and the fam want to laugh hysterically sometime, I fully recommend "1, 2, 3... Cows!"

    Dr. Spock- Do you really believe I would use the word "stupidest"? You know better than that... I said it was wierd and then encouraged it!

    I believe "Oh, Leah that's the stupidest game ever" has just tied "Oh, Charles, you are such a loser" by Mrs Manson, for the lousy parenting award!
