In which the monsters most painfully attempt to explain how to play the game of Guess Who? (a favorite for the last couple of game nights). Clearly, they only performed for the vlog under duress tonight. And since Mommy ended up winning most of the rounds, I guess I was really really lucky to get anything out of them at all that didn't involve stomping, gritting teeth, or flying game pieces. [Hmm...wonder where they get that from?]

In which the monsters drone on and on...and on and on...about our quick little afternoon fishing trip-turned unexpected 3-hour wilderness adventure. Except they tend to leave out all the adjectives, adverbs, and nouns, and only really fill 7 minutes of film with transitional phrases like, "and after that we..."
So, here's the gist of it:
Two-and-a-half hours later...
We'd scaled one mountainside too many, scraped up our elbows and knees, lost the majority of our crawfish water, but emerged triumphantly on the other side...and just in time for dinner, too. And no, it was not crawfish and clam chowder (much to their chagrin). We're, apparently, holding them (still) in our garage in vicious vengeance for their treacherous trickery in deceiving us into believing a shortcut is a shortcut is a shortcut. THAT should teach them!
[pew! what IS that smell?]

In which the monsters attempt to rationalize their OCD over watching Flushed Away at least a bezillion times since Saturday night's movie night. Personally, I still don't get this one.

In which the monsters attempt to explain their current game, which turns into a story, which turns into an epic, with no discernible beginning, middle, or end, which then quickly sounds like any member of my mother's family around the dinner table over the holidays.

In which the monsters make a very feeble and hurried attempt to express their affection and appreciation for their beloved Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Daly. Maybe we'll try this again in the Fall when they get their new 1st grade teachers and begin to realize how very good they actually had it.

In which the monsters discuss their first time instant messaging Mommy while she's on a business trip, a verrrry tedious task that will not soon be repeated, as the quickly dying art of telephone conversation and even the always technically challenging video chatting is just soooo much less painful for Mama to have to sit through (at least until I can get them to two-finger type).

In which the monsters "dress up fancy," donning my scarf (her) and Mommy's vest and his own fedora (him) in order to discuss what they liked and didn't like about Mother's Day.

|Pilot episode of THE CHAGO SHOW in which Chago discusses the most important features and even some rare (some might even say "unheard of") talents of fish.|
