Binge TV
is nothing new. Heck, I’ve already written about it several times. But with the COVID lockdown, there’s been lots more, “What are you watching?” Of course it came up during one of my infrequent recent visits with friends.

“What are you reading?” was also addressed, as it should be.

But then, one of them asked, “What games are you playing?”
And I was surprised.
What a great question!
Why aren’t I playing games?

We play UNO every once in a while. And we have a couple of go-to card games like Crazy 8’s and Kings in the Corner. Maybe some five card stud…why are we so limited in our game thinking?!
You should see our game shelf! It’s FULL!

We have several game shelves!

And yet…

I’m going to hide the remote. Behind a game box.
“Oh, look here,” I’ll say innocently. “Let’s play this game before we watch TV.”
Maybe we’ll start a game of hide the remote and seek.

Are you playing games? What are your favorites? Do tell!


Finally jumped on the Schitt’s Creek bandwagon. Perfect bedtime sitcom.
Loving season 2 of The Order.
Just started In The Dark.
LOVED the first season of Warrior Nun. (judge if you must, but watch it, you’ll like it!)
Looking forward to the next season of The Umbrella Academy.

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett
The Book of Dust by Phillip Pullman
The Show that Never Ends by David Weigel

(Thinking I need to also ask, what are you listening to? LOL)

Stay tuned…!


About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.

  1. E and I have Mancala out on the table, it’s quick and fun and tactically pleasing. We can play a few games without the commitment of a Monopoly afternoon. We also started that boomer time killer, a puzzle. 1000 pieces, it has taken over the dining room table for the next month.
