Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Three teens enjoying a simple passtime.
The Bet 2-28-2011

We laughed out loud as the winner was determined.
Just a bet between three friends, but pure fun.

The object was to eat a sleeve of crackers,
and the first to whistle Yankee Doodle would win.

Eyes and noses wet and running as crackers blew around
the table covered in crumbs.

The winner, unable to control laughter, lost out to runner up
who was able to finish the tune with more control.

There was a burst of joy when finished that has never been
duplicated to this day.

A sweet memory of a time when simplicity was abundant
and laughter was always at a premium.
