Make ALL The Last Minute Plans

Tyson Smith saves the day.

The plans kind of fell through yesterday. I found myself at 8:00 pm thinking of making cookies and forcing my way into a neighbors home to get to know them better. Then maybe I could get to know all of the inmates at the prison after my neighbors called the police.

Fortunately, that didn't happen, Tyson called around 8:00 asking if he could bring a few of his brothers-in-law over for some games. It was a rhetorical question.

I've always wanted to meet one particular Tyson-in-law. It is said that he has a game collection that rivals many of the great geeks of old. It is said that he can play seven simultaneous games blindfolded, yet win none of them. It is said that he will play games until the wee hours of the night. This is my kind of person. He is called Fraser.

Trish rolled her eyes as I managed yet again to set up a game night. I must admit, my success rate has been abnormally high as of late. We didn't get started until around 10:00, but that didn't stop us from playing two long games.

Had a great time playing Powergrid, then Notre Dame. Powergrid is recommendable for people who haven't played many games. If you want to borrow it, just let me know. I can send it almost anywhere. If you live close, I'll even give you a demo of it.

It was great that Tyson helped fill that gap in the schedule. I'm thinking that we are going to have to rely heavily on friends to help us meet their friends. Seriously, if we like you, and they like you, we'll likely like each other. Like the kind of like that really makes you like liking each other. And if they like licking ice cream, we'll likely like licking with them.

What I mean is, bring people by, we'd love to get to know them. I thoroughly enjoyed tonight.
