Tuesday night with the kids

The British beat the French
Native Americans were happy but then
the settlers ignored the proclamation

Stop! she yelled to my tickling
only later to be dressed with a winter vest
a diaper and a grin

taking us away from game 2 in which
Germany (in yellow) defeated the British (in blue)
two out of three in about a minute

which is all it took for us to
hide from the mummies and zombies
we were quiet and made like blankets

rewarded with a snack of carrots, apples
Hershey kisses and a root beer barrel
just before the couch turned to lava
