Things a Five-Year-Old Says During Game Night

30 Jan

My niece and I had a game night this weekend, during which she said the following things:

After winning two rounds of Chinese Checkers: "I'm magical."

After winning four rounds of Uno: "I'm a professional."

After a failed attempt at the Rubik's Cube: "This game is great." (long pause) "I'm being facetious."

After losing at Battleship: "Let the trash-talking begin, stinker."

    That 5-yr-old thinks you’re “cool” 🙂

    What a legacy this is, for the young gamester, for you (in continuing to pass the gaming torch) and for the rest of us because you took the time to share these bon mots. Does J. know that facetious has all the vowels – in order?

      I don’t think she does but I’ll be sure to point it out.

      I wish you could hear her pronounce facetious, it sounds like fa-she-tious.

    Sure seems like relishing gaming is in the genes.
