Well, Aheila put her Drabble Day up late yesterday and was Sorry, so that is our theme =)

I used to like that game. Until I played with James. He kept landing on me. And it wasn't that he landed on me. It was what he did after.

“Sorry!” he would sing song at me with a huge grin on his face.
“Sorry, I got you again!”
“Ooops. Sorry!”
Sorry. Sorry. Sorry.
I can’t erase his fat face with his round glasses and his satisfied smirk. I just wanted to smack it!
But I’m no quitter. I finished the game and kept my mouth shut.
Just wait until tomorrow, James. We’re playing Aggravation.
“Good night, Suzie. Sweet dreams.”
“Good night, Mom.” Oh, I’ll have sweet dreams. Of sending James back Home crying while I say, Sorry!

PS, Robin Weeks is hosting a pitch contest. Check it out!

Like your ghoulish blog background. Sorry and Frustration...good games, hate losing.

Angela Cothran said...

Ha ha! I always hated that game.

E. Arroyo said...

Ha. Something evil about a game called Sorry.

We never played that game, but UNO has been like that at our house. UNO, in its early states, was played with regular cards and called 'Sh*t on your neighbor'. Kinda says it all.

J. A. Bennett said...

Hah ha, my husband would say the same thing about me :)

Small Town Shelly Brown said...

LOL. That game was hard for me as a kid because I usually was really sorry. It almost had me in tears a couple times as a kid because you CAN'T occupy the same space. I would offer to reroll but nobody would let me.
What a softy I was (am)

Small Town Shelly Brown said...

And yes, I love the Halloween motif!

Maeve Frazier said...

I always hated that game. Fun post!

Abby said...

LOL - never could "SORRY" be so aggravating!

Heather Henry said...

Very funny. I love that game. My son and I play it a lot. I don't think I ever win.

Elaine AM Smith said...

Frustration is great up until the point where it makes you want to pull out your hair (if no one elses';)

MISH said...

Love your new header... in keeping with the festivities your side of the globe...
Sorry, but I've never heard of these games ... I must be the only one (they are real games, I presume...?)
Sorry, hope I'm not putting my foot in it by asking silly questions... *giggles*

Angela Brown said...

When I finished reading that, I could just hear a kiddie version of a maniacal laugh about to pop out the MC's mouth. That was such a fun read.

David Powers King said...
