under the big top

Ah…book club.  How often have I skipped the book for better things, only to show up at book club, Cliff’s Notes in hand, muddling through the topic until it was time to play the game?  Too often, I’m sure.  But this time I actually read the book.  It was a good one.  Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen.  And since it was my turn to host, I decided that I would do a circus theme. 

We ate caramel popcorn, mini hotdogs, chips, and frosted cookies.  I forgot to buy the animal crackers, or we would have had all bases covered.  As usual the book discussion was brief so we could move straight to the game.  And what a game it was!

We played a game called Boxers or Briefs, and if you have occasion find the game in your travels, I can’t recommend it enough.  I don’t know when I’ve laughed as much, and the others in our group said the same.  After all…it’s not every day that you have an opportunity to engage in a little bawdy humor with your neighbors!

It was a fun time had by all…more on that tomorrow.  I’m exhausted!

Until the next time…I’ll be dreaming of funnel cakes and fancy elephants!
