It took me close to 2 hours to motivate myself to run tonight. After much grumbling and a quite a few swear words (directed at various inanimate objects in my vicinity—shoes, table, receipt on floor), Rob gave me a hug and I shuffled into the hallway.
“Wait—can you do something for me when I’m gone?” I whined.
“ORDER KADIMA PADDLES!!!!”
So guess what?
BING! That’s right. After 3-4 days shipping & handling, Rob and I are going to be the proud owners of a legit Kadima set. Not Pro Kadima, mind you, original Kadima. (It makes a way better wooden sound.) I’ve been playing Kadima since my tyke days on the beaches of Block Island, RI. When we tired of using the paddles, we’d take the ball and build these insane, complicated “roller coasters” in the sand. Early lessons in engineering, and seriously fun.
So after July 4th when I introduced Rob to this enormously fun game (and peed my pants when we got all the way to 19 hits without dropping the ball. No idea—don’t ask.) and the leisurely Cat Blanket Bingo last night, we rejoiced at the thought of combining the two.
I seriously cannot wait.
Physical activity, games that involve counting, and beer! Let the fun begin!
oh and p.s. anyone wanting to join in the Kadima party after working hours in Congress Park, come on by! That means you, Bryan.
