My grandchildren have been bored, off and on, today. That doesn’t bode well for the summer vacation that has just started. Earlier, the oldest asked me what I used to do when I was young and I got bored. I told her several things like — play board games, listen to the radio or to records, play outside, visit friends, call friends, write letters, use my imagination and make up a game, things like that. I told her we did not have computers or cable TV or any kind of game devices. She was fairly horrified, I do believe. She left the room with a disgusted look on her face.
A little later, she said she wanted to bake something. I mentioned it to her dad. He said — go for it! So, she is making her first cake, alone! Well, she and her sister are making it together. They are arguing about every step. They both want to do each step alone, themselves.
I’ve got my fingers crossed for something edible.
