After Christmas dinner we played a game of Cranium.

“Spell pilates backwards, one letter at a time,” Vicky said.

“Oh shit,” Corrina said. “I can’t spell.”

“I’m sure we’ll do fine. I’ll start,” I said. “S.”

E,” Rich said.

Now it was Corrina’s turn. She looked at the ceiling and said pilates. She thought.

T?”

“Yup that’s right. A.”

L,” Rich said.

Now it was Corrina’s turn. She looked at the ceiling again and said pilates.

“…”

She mumbled pilates. Pi-la-tes.

“…”

R?”

“…”

“Is she serious?” Rich asked.

“I think we just lost.”

    Oh, Corrina. I don’t even know you but I feel bad about that “R” slip up.

    Hope your holidays were fabulous! That text message from NZ was totally awesome! Did you get mine back? I guess I will find out when I have a $90 text message charge on my next phone bill.

    We thought she was talking pirate… and no I didn’t get your message, stink.

    Did you have a nice Christmas? I talked to my parents and it sounded like fun. I’m meeting them in about three months in Hawaii. I’m looking forward to the vacation!
