My walnut is unstable in that ill spot that it currently resides in. I'm supposed to be taking it easy but I'm breaking the rules of illness. Laughter is making me feel better already.
I picked up my amazing brother his new wife, Kerry, from the airport tonight. My lil lady has been so excited about this moment for a good few days now. We waited at arrivals for what seemed an age (ok, it was 15 minutes) and as soon as those bronzed bodies came through the door, she was off like the clappers to give them her bestest love. I love arrivals - they make me smile. Lots of people happy and hugging.
We got back to our house to get stuff washed and give them a cup of tea whilst chatting about their superb honeymoon in the Maldives. I'm so envious of the paradise the had found. They deserved such a place to take their minds off the pressure of the wedding. We scoffed Chinese to sustain the energy which was about to be expended. Because not long after, out came the Wii.
But it wasn't the Wii that had Kerry and I spraying saliva everywhere and bursting blood vessels in our head from pressurised laughter. It was the game I adore called Absolute Balderdash. Its a laugh a second game that has your sides splitting, your head exploding and leaves you gasping for air. I know I don't look a pretty sight when I am heaving with laughter. Neither does Keriola (our new nickname for kerry). Both our heads were pewse from laughing so hard that I swear we would die from it.
Balderdash is a game of bluffing.
In the extreme.
I can't explain it properly.
You just have to go and buy it.
Its money well spent. It was for me, anyway. I got it in a charity shop for £2.99
It supersedes my original game of the plain old balderdash. But you must look out for Absolute Baldersash.
For Christmas or thanksgiving or for any family get togethers.
And I promise you that you will heave your guts up on the table from laughter. If cows can chuck up their food after a few hours, Im sure you can.
