My mom and her husband came to visit this past weekend. Since it was raining, we decided to play board games. One of the games was Clue. A game where you have to guess who committed a murder, with what weapon it was committed, and in what room of the mansion it was committed in. It's a game of strategy that involves a process of elimination. The answer is a set of cards that is hidden away in a "confidential" envelope. You all might be familiar with the game.
As we played the game, it seemed that the location was pretty much pinpointed. All of us thought the murder was done in the Billiard room. Well, it turns out that my son, Bubba, was holding out on us.
He accidentally showed my daughter that he was holding the Billiard room card. Even though previously going around the table revealed that nobody had that card.
"Dude!" my daughter exclaimed. "You had it the whole time?"
Bubba laughed. "Yeah. I kind of forgot about it."
"Forgot about it? It's right there in your hand. How could you forget about it?"
Before I leave, I would like to share my SCBWI Book Stop page for Bubba and Squirt's Big Dig to China. There's a contest to see who can get the most likes and comments. If you feel inspired, please stop by and like or comment on the page. Thanks! Click on this link.
