Jom main pick up sticks!
Does any of you still remember this game? This is one of the game we used to play when we were little. It's the "sticks" game or whatchamacallit.
It all started last weekend while we were browsing through the toys section to get a toy for our nephew who has turned one a few days ago. Hubby was contemplating to buy a board game for us, the parents. We were choosing and browsing and choosing again when I suddenly saw it. I insisted that we grabbed this instead as it's been too long since the last time I played this game.
Oh, really we shouldn't have bought this thing. It has become the cause for us to quarrel every night (literally). Whenever we started playing, we'd start calling each other liar. Oh yes! He cheated every time we played. Seriously. Either that or my eyes played tricks on me.
I mean, how can it be possible for you to pick up the stick that's closely sticking to another one without making the other one move? How come hubby can do that, like all the time??? Mesti dia jampi aku nih, so that I won't see them move, cehh!
The first night we played, I won. But a couple of times after that, I refused to finish the game and always demanded a rematch when I started losing. Of course, he was using tricks unknown to me, cheating me out of the victory that's supposed to be mine! Of course I couldn't just sit there and let him win without a fight now, could I?
Oh my, now I just sound like a sore loser.
