Last night is a perfect example. Our ward had a BBQ/bonfire and after dinner there was group that went to play games. We played red rover and a girl named Malissa came running over and tried to break between Dave Bonnie and I. I don’t know how it happened but we ended up close lining her. Her neck hit our arms and she went flying. She flew up and landed on her back hitting her head on the ground. Luckily she did not get a concussion, just a slight head ache. I felt so bad. Dave Bonnie and I picked her some flowers and sang a really horrible sounding song comprised of the term "I'm Sorry" over and over in various keys.
These sorts of experiences seem to happen to me a lot. Another example happened a few years ago at a family reunion. We were playing soccer and I cleared the ball down the field. Right at that moment a 2-year-old with a sucker in his mouth wandered onto the field. Luckily he was fine. While these two instances don;t technically suggest a pattern I am sure there are many more that, as a defense mechanism, I can’t remember right now. Maybe I am cursed. Let me know if I any of you have incurred bodily harm as a result of playing a game with me.
Here are the main characters of this story:
Unfortunately she was not on the phone while playing read rover so I can't project any blame on her.
