"Not 'It'"

So far, summer with Audrey has been fantastic. Aside from our daily errands, art projects and taking advantage of by familiarizing myself with TV shows on DVD (Freaks and Geeks, anyone?), we often times get to squeeze-in a round or two of her favorite new game: Hide N' Seek.

Hide N' Seek--also known in some circles as "Hide and-go seek"--is a popular variant of the game tag, in which one or more players ("it") search for the other players ("not 'it'"), who have been given ample time in which to find a place to hide. The game starts with all players in a central location. The overall objective is to not be discovered by "it."

Audrey enjoys playing both roles in this scenario. She has, however, mastered the art of "it," having learned how to count to twelve. As "not 'it'," I've discovered many places, within our little house, that would serve as safe haven in the event of a zombie attack.

But when the tables have turned, Audrey tends to get overzealous and misses the point of what it means to be "not 'it.'" As the comic strip above illustrates, when playing the role of "it," I finish my counting, turn around and begin to take a few steps before Audrey jumps out and presents herself. Just once, I'd like to give chase.

I love Freaks and Geeks! I wish they hadn't canceled it so soon.

The moustache loved Freaks & Geeks. I've never seen an episode, so I have no comment.
