Another thing that happened over my long absence was the EXTREME GAME.

For those of you who mised my fifth of July party, I have to tell you that one of the highlights of the party (for me at least) was the playing of the EXTREME GAME!!!! If you don’t know what the EXTREME GAME!!!! is, that’s because it’s a game my family made up. When it becomes an olympic sport, be sure to credit us.

It’s played in the pool. There are two teams, and a small-ish cushy ball. The object is for your team to get the ball to the other side of the pool any way possible. The only rule is that there are no rules. No, that’s not entirely true. We have two rules: 1. No choking anyone. 2. No sticking the ball down your pants/bathing suit. Both of these happened, so we did make rules about them. I’m sure you’ll agree that we’re not being unreasonable.

The game is utter chaos and hilarity. It’s non-stop muscle-tearing intensity. People grab people and get dragged and dunked and scratched and twisted. The most common injury is scratches from fingernails. People have been thrown before, literally thrown. It’s amazing to watch and more amazing to play. It is understandably too intense for some people, and we don’t judge. Well, maybe just a little. However, for all my injuries, it remains one of my favorite games ever.

    A similar game, but not in a pool, is played in the Orkney Islands in Scotland.
