short true story

My friend was talking about her husband and his friends and their weekend away.

Boys are so easily amused. she said.

"What do you mean?" I asked.

You know, one weekend we went away just the couples and the boys were gone for hours and hours in the garage. We heard them laughing so loudly that we went to see what was going on and well, there they were. D was standing near the garage door and the rest of them had ping pong balls in their hands.

They had invented a game: Sting-pong.

"Haha, wtf is sting-pong?"

It's where one boy stands at one end of the garage and the rest of them use ping pong balls to throw as hard as they can aiming for that one person. "IT" is not allowed to run, or hide. They have to just take it. They can use one hand to protect their eyes and one hand to protect their balls. D had welts all over his body.

They thought it was the best thing ever.

"okay, that is the dumbest thing I've ever heard but it does sound pretty funny. Maybe it's a teen humour thing".

M [husband] is 37 years old!
