Karla said...

oh question...you got a speeding ticket? Noah took a mouse to work?

The Three 22nds said...

Yeah, on the way home from G & Gs. It was lovely. Anyway, you know about the mouse...remember when he didn't want to kill it so he drove with it all the way to work and released it in the field?

The Three 22nds said...

I have no problem killing a mouse in a fair fight.

The mouse in question was weak, dehydrated, and quite pathetic. I wasn't interested in crushing him with my bare hands.

Sounds like you got yourself a keeper! But I bet I could wipe #5 off the list if given the chance:)

The Three 22nds said...

Maybe:) We do tend to play with people that we have taught and who aren't quite as "into it" as we are! In fact there is many a time that after the game we will say to each other, "so and so should have won...they just have no end game!" But it is true that the opprotunities to count Noah out are few and far between, and usually only when his numbers just are not being rolled at all.
