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.
