Our daughter Faith visited this past weekend to celebrate her birthday which was earlier in July. During her visit, we played some board games. I lost two very close games of backgammon – we both had one stone on the one point each time, but she had the next roll. We also played Sorry!
When Faith was a young girl, we played board games often. I was getting so tired of losing at Candyland and sliding down the big chute in Chutes and Ladders, that I decided to step our game up to Sorry! even though she wasn’t yet the recommended age. I explained the rules, and we began. A few minutes later, she was kicking one of my men back to Start and, with her best little mocking tone – ♫Sorry – and giggles.
I reminded her of that story on Sunday and she said,
“Sorry, the game where I learned sarcasm!”
