A visit from Martin King with the #100blogfest

How many of you followed the #100blogfest with Martin King to land here?  If not, here’s the scoop:  he’s challenged himself to visit and write 100 blogs at 100 different sites all during the month of August. You can follow his progress under the hashtag heading on Twitter.  Now take it away Martin!

Myself and my sister were always making up new games for wet, horrible days. You know days that you had to stay in.

You always had the usual suspects like playing hide and seek or if you had a few friends round, blind man’s bluff or what time is it Mr. Wolf? But when we were alone and looking for something to inspire us, it was time to invent a new game.

Once such game was dinosaurs. One of us would be the Tyrannosaurus Rex while the other would be the Triceratops. How it worked was like this, one of us could only move on all fours like the Triceratops and the other would get to stand up like the T-Rex. Now you may feel that whoever played T-Rex had an unfair advantage, but that is where you would be wrong.

As T-Rex you were only allowed little arms, so although you had height advantage, you couldn’t really do much damage. Whereas as Triceratops you could charge and put one hand on your head like a big horn.

Another game we played was the pushing off couch game. You would both be sat on the sofa and would try and shove the other one off.

But our real favourite was the kicking game. Me and my sister would lie on our backs at each end of the couch and then kick like mad. I can tell you it really hurt, but the fanatical kicking would not stop until either one of you was kicked off the couch or called for mercy.

(In the spirit of Music Monday here’s a song about mercy dedicated to Martin.)

These blogs are all about fun and sharing. Thank you for reading a ‘#100blogfest’ blog. Please follow this link to find the next blog in the series: http://martinkingauthor.com/blog/7094550076

And, thank you for stopping by, Martin.  We’re happy to support your mission and it makes me wonder if this is Guinness Book of World Records worthy.  It might be.  Good luck with the rest of your tour.
