I wake up quite early in fact. I yeah I don’t feel great but not as bad as I expect. I get breakfast for us both, which half way through I decide to clean the kitchen window from top to bottom. My brother gives the frying pan a poke, and I get down and finish it off. I then suggest we go for a walk into the town to see what shops are open. My brother is keen on this as he needs some new trainers. So we head down the road and into the shopping center. Not all the shops are open but some are. I take him to game, Wilko’s, and JD sports. Whilst in Game we are talking to the assistant about a playstation 4 and the deal on swapping a PS3. However I’m interupted by Alan calling “Nack we are on our way if your in”. “Well I’m not in but I’m not far I reply, come on down if you want”. I was surprised by this as I knew they’d gone to a party the night before and expected them to have not gone to bed until 4am! My brother was desperate to go to Aldi at the furthest part of the town center and so off we went.
And doing so took us past The Electric Palace Picture house. whilst Stockport has the Plaza we have this.
We make it to the Adli and buy lost of things I was intending to buy, including a door matt. Alan calls, “where are you?” “Still in the center, walk on down and well get a drink”
After a getting Alan lost we meet up in the car park. They had walked it was just easier to relocate them there and there they were waving at us. We headed into the Weather spoons and sat outside. Zoe got out a game about fireworks. A game where you have to play with each other and not against each other.
A game were you can’t look at your own cards.
A game were you have to be selectively helpful to each other to maximise the overall end score.
Very enjoyable as a foursome. They want some food so
we go to the pub that used to put bands on but now just serves food.
I have a milk shake, which Alan and Zoe seem very happy about.
One minute it is there.
the next it is gone. Ahhh lovely.
Our food comes and we get served. I reach for two chilli bottles and as if the one with the skull and cross bones is extra hot or something to be avoided at all costs. But apparently that's not why the skull and cross bones is on the bottle.
We head back to my place and we decide to sit in the garden. I get the table out that Mrs Poade gave to me and
Zoe gets out the game that I brought for her birthday.
We set the game up.
We read the rules and play.
and what appears to be a very complicate game at first is uniquely enjoyable.
But who is going to win, it appears so random?
the game goes on and on and on.
But not in a bad way.
And as we play some of us get better and better and better at it.
and some of don’t!
that would be me.
Tea is served
although my tea pot doesn’t contain earl grey to Zoe disappointment and neither does my kitchen.
the Buddha watches over us
and I show Zoe my fairy lights – although not my fairy.
The game comes to an end. And Micheal Menzel has produced a great game.
i know he’s done 3 others as well.
Alan and Zoe leave before dark and I take my brother home before going around my parents.
Time flies by before you know it.
I settle down and
try to watch that episode of Doctor who again all the way through. Its been a most enjoyable day.
