Marbles

I was playing on my PawPad earlier today when the screen suddenly went blank.  It was low on battery.  Don’t you hate when that happens?

So I plugged it in for a recharge.

But now I was bored, with nothing to do.  So I went to Uncle Tibbs.

“Uncle Tibbs, I am bored,” I sighed.

“Really!” he replied.

“Yes, really,” I said.  “I have absolutely nothing to do.  I am beary bored out of my stuffie mind.”

“Ajdin, when I was a little bear, one of my favorite things to do was play a game of marbles.  Have you played that before?”

“I’m not even sure what a marble is, Uncle Tibbs,” I said.  “I have never seen a marble before.”

“What!” he exclaimed.  “I must be getting old.”

He took the lid off the tin box of marbles, revealing beautiful colors and designs inside.

Then, in one WHOOSH, Uncle Tibbs dumped the marbles on the floor.

“Wow!  Look at that one!” I said.  “And that one over there!  And how about that great big marble in the middle!”

“That’s my favorite marble.. because it’s BIG!” said Uncle Tibbs.

He set up the marbles and we were ready to play.

“Whaaaaaat aaaaare youuuuuu dooooooing?” said Ooogie.

“We’re playing marbles, Ooogie.  Do you want to join?”

“Yeaaaaaaaaaaah.”

So we had a third player.

“Oh marbles!  How wonderful!  May I join?” asked Miss Feathers.

“Why certainly,” I replied.

“Woof woof woof!  Woof?”

“Yes, here is your marble shooter, Parker,” I said.

So we played marbles the entire afternoon.  It was lots of fun!

Have you played marbles before?
