Really? I Never Knew That!

last night derek wanted to have a game night. we had people over for dinner and then some of us played trivial pursuit. that was fun. then more people left and the truly diehard gamers played taboo. oh, yes. it was great. my sister and my sister in law and one niece were on a team and they were called "the winners". i was on a team with a niece and nephew and we were called "the chocolate frogs". the winners won with 54 points while we had only 46. the best part of the game was my 11 yr old niece who taught us that a stagger is a weapon used in the board game clue, that owls are furry, and that jukeboxes have been around since the 1700's. oh, yes, it was a good time for all.
