But they're short. I don't care if they're made out of magical flying tiger hair, a cold wind on a willy sounds horrid.



That part stays covered! And socks are worn with them.

How many points for using this thread as distraction at urgent care while waiting to see if dd broke her pinky? And do I get bonus points for it being a military facility 30 min from home?

I will award you 76 points for growing up in Texas.  Some were deducted from your possible total due to leaving because who does that???

Well, this is on the general education board so I am guessing that she wanted a math curriculum that is spiral, mastery, independent, and prepares kids for the AP exam.

If the clinic was in Texas, she would have received two points per minute, per the Official Rules. 

 

Make your decisions carefully, people.  They matter.

<----------------------   check THIS out!  

 

Competitive DH was all excited about my score, until he found out the context of the game (i.e., this thread).  

 

So after getting over the fact that his wife is NOT going to be the next great thing in Classical Home Education, he suggested that at the very least we should find a way to track our running totals.  And so finally…. a purpose for the Member Title!

 

<----- Ta Da!   

 

Points for unsurpassed creative innovation?  With bonus points, since I haven't even finished my first cup of coffee this morning?

I could get a picture of the kilt on the fire truck.  But alas, no fireman will be in attendance.  So, it's not as inspiring.

 

Can I get points for having a kilt and a fire man, even if the two won't be joined????

10 points for having a kilt and a fireman. For producing pics of a fireman in a kilt, infinity points.

But is it a scripted rambling zig zag?

 

It's half scripted -- any more than that and it wouldn't be a RAMBLING zig-zag.  But the directions are like Google directions -- sometimes there's a better route than what they show you.  Basically, throw in your own unique zigs and a few impromptu zags, and you will find your way.

I don't understand! I grew spending my summers in the sticks! I learned to make moonshine when I was 4! I should have been able to pass an online test. I guess that's what I get for being honest.
