My chess board.

Quinlan told me yesterday, that when they play alone its boring, but with me there it feels so real.

Got me thinking.

The truth is, I use them as my pawns, to create stories. And as I tell them whats going on, and explain briefly what whatever we're battling/defending/running-away-from looks like.

I make a view point for everyone.

Like how Critter is gonna be attacked by a massive spider that's about to eat him.

Or how Trenton was about to be sliced by a orc.

And I put it into the game, and yes, it feels so real.

I get into it, And whatever I am at the time, I actually become.

Like if I'm the leader, I yell and shout encouragements and directions.

Or I become a Ganator (A creature I made up.) And I toss kids around, and bellow, swinging a piece of wood as a club.

It seems very real to me.

I'm still a 10 year old at heart I guess.

And I do love playing with those grand kids. :D

Play on rockers!

Love, The Paina


  1. And the grandkids love playing with you.

    Keep doing it. At least until you're forty.

  2. Yep. Till your forty. Now you're stuck. ;)

  3. Heck, longer than forty. Imagination never dies as long as you use it!

  4. That's totally what I used to do for you little people... Lin, Dan, Pat, you, Tiana.. not so much Critter. He was sooo little. :)

    Yeah, keep it up. Don't grow up and figure you're too "mature" to do it. :)


Leave a comment! I love them!
