Poor Sport

I spanked Kenny in hula hoop last night on Wii Fit, it was awesome. The four of us all played after Chloe went to bed. Ellie Kate got frustrated because she couldn't keep her hula hoop up- so she threw down the remote. For the record this is a result of Kenny's genetic contribution to our children. He is the most competitive person I know, to the extent that I along with other members of our family will rarely play board games with him.

Madelyn and Ellie were doing the 2 person run today and again Ellie threw down her remote again when she lost. I told her she had to stop playing. I then told Kenny that he needed to teach the girls about sportsmanship. He said, I don't act like that when I play games. I laughed and said "Kenny, seriously.., don't make me call witnesses."

About 7 years ago, we had Thanksgiving at our house. Kenny and several other people were playing Risk. It came down to Kenny and my brother Jerred. Jerred started saying that Kenny was cheating and refused to roll the dice. Jerred eventually stuck the dice in his mouth. Kenny went psycho because Jerred wouldn't roll the dice and so he hit Jerred on the back to make him spit out the dice. When the dice hit the table Kenny started yelling hysterically "That's a roll, That's a roll, that counts as a roll". I don't even remember who won, I only remember the expression on my Grandma Ruby and her husband T.R's face. This was their first time to ever really be around Kenny and I'm certain they thought he was crazy and no doubt he is when competing. Now we just have to figure out how to reverse the girls genetic disposition:)

Ok no for the record this is how it went. I had already beat him and when our cousin Jason had to leave he said he would take his spot. So he took jason's spot and then started cheating. When I refused to roll the dice again because he had cheated. He went psycho grabbed the dice shoved them and my mouth and held my mouth closed. Then he said are you going to roll now and I shook my head no. Then while holding my mouth closed plugged my nose and said something like well if your not going to roll then your going to swallow them. While I am fighting to breath while not swallowing the dice you (tamatha) start yelling at him. So he lets go and spit the dice out on the table thats when he started going psycho again saying thats a roll thats a roll.

Oh Jerred... I was laughing so hard last night when I read this. My apologies that my freak of a husband has obviously traumatized you for life. You were all of what 11? Kenny owes you some therapy:) Love you sweet brother. T

Jerred said...

I WAS LAUGHING SO HARD AT WORK I WAS ALMOST IN TEARS AT BOTH OF YOU!!! FIRST I THOUGHT TAMATHA'S STORY WAS FUNNY BUT THEN JERRED'S VERSION TOPPED IT OFF. I DON'T KNOW WHY I DON'T REMEMBER ALL OF THAT...I REMEMBER THEM GETTING INTO IT BUT NOT THAT MUCH DETAIL!! SOUNDS LIKE THEY BOTH NEED THERAPY!!!
