Possible New Zapardy! Game
Lion has been coughing for a few days. He says he can’t stand it anymore. I’ve been coughing for weeks. I think he can stand it. It’s not that I don’t have sympathy for him. I just don’t think it’s as bad as he does.
The good news of the morning is that Lion was actually hungry. He hasn’t eaten much in the past few days but he decided he should eat whether he wants to or not so he can get better. What an adult thing to do! Yes, I’m teasing him. He looks a lot better today. Maybe he’ll want lunch and dinner too.
This will be our third or fourth week of watching football the boring old way. He hasn’t felt well enough to play our zapping and swatting game. That’s okay. We still have Zapardy! and whatever other game that morphs from it. Jeopardy! is on every weeknight so we have many opportunities. There’s even an all-star series of Jeopardy! games coming up. What torture can I come up with for those episodes? Maybe if the players I don’t like get a correct answer, Lion will get zapped. Maybe that will be part of the morphed game. Each night he can pick a number between one and three and whichever player that is earns Lion a zap for each incorrect answer. Or some swats. The rules are a work in progress.
Whatever the new game is, I’m sure Lion will learn to love and hate Jeopardy! at the same time. When we watch without the zapper, sometimes he’ll say it would be a good night to have played since he gets a lot of questions right. If the zaps/swats are dependent on a contestant’s answer, it won’t matter how many questions Lion gets right. Yeah. This could be a very good game. Just not necessarily a good game for Lion.
