First, you decide you'd like to play a game of ping pong.
The fact that we have no ping pong table is only a minor issue.
The kitchen table will work just dandy.
Throw in a few video games and some disposable container lids and the game's on.
All is going well. Until oldest son has a brainstorm and goes running.
One letter opener, one ruler, and massive amounts of masking tape later, two "paddles" are born.
The game continues until one boy is obviously convicted and decides to take a "biblical approach" to the makeshift net.
Satisfied that they have covered enough versions, play continues.
Alas, the ball rarely hits the table.
But it does make constant contact with painted walls, decorations, lamps, doors, etc.
Notice the concentration that is required to hit everything in the room EXCEPT the table.
Finally tired, the "sping spong" (as they've dubbed it) champs take a break.
But don't let them fool you!
