Pick-Up Sticks

We recently purchased a bulk lot from the auction which is essentially like pulling up in front of a garage sale before they have put anything out and saying, "We'll take it!" without seeing anything. In one of the many boxes of crap we bought I found this old game of Pick-Up Sticks which I remember playing with my grandmother. I was so excited to bring it in and play it with Cohen, not remembering the rules and how impossible this experience was going to be to share with a 3 year old.

As is always the case Cohen hopped on board and went about making this experience with her one to remember. Cohen was kind enough to participate in the following reinactment to document why you should never play Pick Up Sticks with a toddler... for you dumbasses (like me) who have to be told.

I probably shouldn't have laughed, but this was ever so slightly amusing :) We used to play pick up sticks at primary school, how novel that they are still around! :)

I just found your blog and have stayed up way too late reading your archives. Stalkerish? Slightly. But I am enjoying it so. Because you are awesome. And I love how you write.
