FIRST NIGHT OUT


FIRST NIGHT OUT…!

 

Their first night out in many months

Without a doctor’s call…

It’s not a romp around the town,

Just church game night, that’s all.

-

He separates the salad

So she can eat it all….

He gets in line for his own food

To pile his own plate tall.

-

For her, ziti with meatballs,

For him sausage was fine…

In fact he got some of both

The next time through the line.

-

A mixed group there,

Two families with kids, some old some young…

And several couples without kids

But singles they had “brung”.

-

The dinner was fabulous,

‘Twas time to celebrate…

 They learned  the Missions Fund was  over-flowing

In spite of all they ate.

-

A successful dinner…

Fundraising didn’t hurt,

The best of all, no one had

Any sauce dripped on the shirt!

-

They played some PICTIONARY,*

A drawing game to guess

The word or phase done for that team…

Some drawings did it best.

-

The group in front with the youngsters

Broke a three-way tie…

Cake pops in a special box

Were their tasty prize.

-

Our couple got home before eight,

In time for some TV….

It was a good time to go out

And join a friendly spree.

NOTE:  “PICTIONARY”  is a word guessing game by Robert Angel, first published in 1985 by Seattle Games Inc.   Since 1994, it has been published by Hasbro.
