I went to an engagement party recently. I ate at the grown-ups' table. We talked about boring stuff - I can't even remember what. There were awkward pauses. Eventually, I wandered into the yard and the kids challenged me to a race. I won, and then I collapsed from exhaustion on the ground while they ran three more races (I have really got to find a way to start exercising). After that, we played hide-and-seek tag, tea party, pizza parlor, alligator, bird, dinosaur, grab-the-moss-from-the-tree, pretend-steal-the-pretend-gold, kill-the-pretend-witch, and catch-the-dummy, which I thought was pretend until I found out they had made me the dummy. It was the best party I had ever been to.
