Cute. No darts here… trying to hone my creative “story for six-year-old granddaughters who are bored at home” abilities. Facetime babysitting is a thing!!
Ah, but I started a family tradition decades ago. I told the kids a story, using the dog as part of it. More to the point, what does she think? Then ‘translated’ for the kids. “I think bob is silly and sometimes I wanna bite him but he feeds me alla time so I can’t. Besides, he tough as nail and I’d only break my poor fangs.” And, “I looove Susie the Squirrel. She’s really silly so do not never give her candy ’cause she just get goofy and bad. Just give me the candy and I’ll eat t for her!” And they tell theirs, and now a great-grandchild thinks the dog talks to Daddy 🙂 And, of course, short stories about each of them, How PJ got his name (Piranha jaws because if you fed him when he was just getting into solid food, you better count your fingers, later). How Sammy slammer got her name (Samira, when still nursing would get gas so bad, I told them buzzards fainted on wing). The grandkids are mostly adults now, but still get the giggles when they’re reminded of that. Keep writing!
He makes a great “point”. LOL
I’d probably have to have Mark Rober’s dartboard if I wanted to get better at darts (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHTizZ_XcUM). Now, there is a guy with some time on his hands, plus some of the tech he has designed is currently on another planet.
I wish I had time. I work as a hospital Materials Manager and usually have lots of time on my hands in the Winter and early Spring months, but this year I get to put in 70 hour weeks trying to find supplies. On top of that I’m the tech guy at church, so that takes up extra time nowadays, too.
My plan THIS year was to work on learning to prepare my book proposal . . .

Ha. Okay, my reply was lame but it’s been a long day……
During quarantine, everything looks like delivery pizza. But I would never bother cutting them in that many little triangles. I’m eating right out of the box and big slices work better, right?
