Harrison and I helped set up for a host party on the 21st of March. There were some games; Pass the Pass, Cholla Ball Golf, Horseshoes, Raking Contest. I played two games of Pass the Pass against my kid friends, and won it both times. Somehow, I just know when to catch it. I can do the same with the football.
First, I helped Mark set up the Pass the Pass circle, and then hopped over to Harrison to help him set up the balloons for the cholla golf. He blew them up, and I tied them to a string that was set up across the tarp.
People started coming quickly. Harrison identified their cars as they drove up. We were both ‘patiently’ waiting for our kid hosting friends. We love to play football with them.
Harrison and I played football with Devin and Aiden until Dan, the supervisor, brought the pizza in. Then we headed under the ramada to eat.
After I ate I helped set up the cholla balls for cholla golf, being careful not to prick myself as I pulled them off of the tarp with my hands.
Soon, I handed the job over to someone else and roamed around, throwing a ball with Harrison, Devin, Aiden, Summer, and Kim. Soon, I ended up at the raking contest and got blindfolded. I didn’t do best, and I didn’t do worst. Right in the middle.
When the prizes came to happen, I won brownie mix. Now we just have to find an oven.
I was throwing a ball with Devin, Summer, and Aiden when Dan meandered over and asked me, “What’s wrong with your ball?”
I didn’t really notice anything wrong with it, but I let him hold it and said, “Well, we use it a lot.”
“All the ends are rubbed off,” he noticed.
Dan threw the football to us, and we threw it back, and crisscross, and to each other. It was fun. I love playing football. Too soon, everybody left, we cleaned up, and left. Five hours can seem like minutes.
