Pulling No Punches

posted by Momo Fali on July 29, 2009

While driving the car, I looked in the rear view mirror to see my seven year old son lean slowly across the back seat toward his older sister. His movements were deliberate so as not to be seen by me.

Then in a hushed tone I heard him say, “Hey, Sis. Let’s play slug bug so I can slug you.”

    Of course as the driver, and probably tallest person in the car, you can spot the bugs first and pretty much slug whoever you want the whole time. I'm in!

    He's a genius! I always punch first, ask questions later.

    It's like when they hand you a water pistol for filling, so they can then shoot you with it.

    very interesting tactic.

    i personally love the use of slugbug for my own nefarious purposes!

    Nothing like a really exciting game of hitting your sister to perk a boy up. 🙂
