It’s been a quiet evening. Our KT arrived home safely from her camping trip (with nary a bear sighting) smelly, tired and with lots of stories to share. After a long, hot shower for KT, and dinner and story telling for all of us, the girls went off by themselves for a bit.
It wasn’t too long before they came back to the living room and were sitting cross-legged on the floor at my feet with a deck of cards between them. Both of the girls..and both of the dogs…had a colorful bandana perched on her head (sometimes it’s better not to ask…although I do wish I’d had my camera handy) and they were playing a loud game of Speed. I was only half paying attention to them as I was engrossed in my reading…and maybe a tiny bit of Bejeweled.
I’m not sure why, but I suddenly tuned into what they were saying.
Mimi: You want to come help me with this thing? (I wasn’t really listening, so I don’t know what it was)
KT: Nope, I’m going to stay right here and play Solitaire.
Mimi: Solitaire? With cards? You can’t do that!
I tried…I really tried, but I couldn’t hold in the laughter. My girl, who had grown up in the age of technology, honestly hadn’t realized that Solitaire wasn’t just a computer game. Once upon a time, many years ago, before computers were common place, we played card games and board games. Who knew…
