Day 2: B-I-N-G-O

Day 2 of camp was a vast improvement over Day 1, in that they headed for the great indoors on what was yet another exceedingly hot and sticky day.  Like at the last camp, there were lots and lots of gym games.  Not exactly Audrey's forte.  They played something called Sharks & Minnows that seems to have involved two groups of kids running headlong into each other.  Audrey the Minnow got kneecapped by a Shark and was down for the count about 30 seconds in.

Next up was Bingo, which was much more up Audrey's alley. 


I'm not sure what it tells me that Audrey is much more comfortable playing a game beloved by the geriatric set than she is playing gym games with kids her own age.  It got me thinking that Audrey really is closer in personality to a senior citizen than a kid.  Maybe I will make this week an All Top 10 Week, because here are my Top 10 Ways That Audrey is Like a Senior Citizen:

10)  She likes the Weather Channel.
9)  She looks a little flashy-clashy when she dresses herself.
8)  You can't follow her stories.
7)  She's losing her teeth.
6)  She gets frazzled if she has more than one activity on her calendar.
5)  She repeats herself.
4)  She has to wear sensible shoes.
3)  She can't see above the steering wheel.
2)  She couldn't tell you what she had for breakfast.

And the #1 way in which Audrey is like a senior citizen...
1)  She likes to walk in circles at the mall.

  2. We all have our senior characteristics, right?! My little guys line their slippers up bedside at night time so first thing in the morning, they can slip them on. Julian will dig through cute, trendy jean shorts to find his elastic jean shorts "without the buttons"---like little old men!

    Love the top 10 list!

  3. Mindi, the easy entry/exit shorts is a great one! Audrey always has trouble in the fall when she has to transition back into jeans...so constricting!

  4. I am dying on the floor laughing right now. Maybe you should try out the Marie Calendar's near you; she would probably love the early dinner special with pie.

  10. Maybe there's a reason Audrey likes bingo more than ships and sailors or sharks and minnows... When you win bingo there's a prize!! And she did get a bingo!! Boy was she excited!
