Taco Bout It Tuesday: Backflips and Turkeys

Welcome! Are you tired of looking at polls and stats and prediction makers? Well, let’s taco-bout something different!

This week, my siblings and I flew/drove to my parents’ state to visit. Tonight we had early Thanksgiving, which is the first time in eight years we have been together around this time of the year to celebrate it! All five of us stuffed our stuffed bodies onto the couch [it was all elbows and knees] and as a distraction from the tv my sister pulled up this game called Backflip Madness.

I bought it with my Google Rewards money for $.99, but my brother didn’t want to spend the money so he got SwagFlip, which is free.

backflipAs we were laughing and flipping and dying and laughing, my mom leaned over and asked what we were playing. I could tell this shy, but amusing woman who doesn’t like violence was actually really interested in the game!! I asked if she wanted to play and got a hesitant “suuure”. After tapping way too much, not sticking any landings, and wondering how much tylenol such a person might need, she handed my phone back and took out her Trac-phone to see if her app store had the game. It didn’t, but I believe her tablet did so she got to play for a bit.


So, I want to know [and answer one, none, any, or all!]:

  1. What are your favorite phone games?
  2. What do you do as a distraction for tense situations?
  3. What is your favorite Thanksgiving food?

Let us know!

      Ohh, aromatherapy is something I’ve been meaning to try. If I get my sister for our Secret Santa swap this year I’ll get her one so she can tell me how it is. Chocolate dessert mmmm!

      Laura, I hope you got lots of your Thanksgiving favorites! I had some really good mashed potatoes on Thursday, and ended up taking a bunch home.

    (1) Pokemon Go or as Squeak calls it “Pikabum!”
    (2) Basically using an electronic device to either go on FB (I usually look up those annoying needy friends who posts all the time I took them off the feed) and YouTube.
    (3) Mashed potatoes!!!
