Who can forget the counting till 100 before every other player finds a safe hideout for himself? This was one of the most commonly played games during my "growing up" years.
In my neighbourhood, we had so many kids that it was almost impossible for the catcher (seeker) to find everyone before someone claims "All safe" at his base. Therefore we had a rule, if the same person is the catcher for three consecutive games, then he gets the option of relieving himself from the duty. This, he can franchise by licking the wall (his base) three times (roughly 3 inches each lick). Cruel? Yeah but if you think of it, you will find that it was a worthy bargain and almost everyone availed it.
I was a pain for most catchers because I was not easily traceable. Sometimes, I had this habit of going home and forgetting about the game totally. The poor catcher would wait hours in search of me.
Tonight, my customer called me at around 10:00 pm and said that he has "a code promotion that needs to be completed before tomorrow". I believed him and am still waiting (2:00 AM CST now) for his call. Do I have to lick the wall to get out of this situation? Show me the wall.
Atleast I got this post in!!!
