The guy’s guide to rainy-day funPosted: July 11, 2014
He says: “Hon, the guys and I will be out in the garage tuning in to the Red Sox game on the radio.”
She says: “Looks like a nice radio. Made by Royal London. Huh. Where’d you get that?”
He says: “Oh, from somewhere. And if we can’t get the Sox game we can always tune in to the police or marine stations.”
She says: “Well, have fun out there.”
Two minutes later . . .
He says: “Hey, somebody turn on that ‘radio’!”
Yes indeed, this is the guys’ way to have fun.
Doesn’t matter if the Sox win or not. Although this portable bar was made in 1968, right after their 1967 “Impossible Dream” year, so hopes were riding pretty high then.
I only know that ’cause I’m married to a native New Englander.
And hey, look, somebody brought the guys’ party game, too!
The Great Game of Jackstraws is a box of tiny plastic tools! My favorite is the canoe paddle. Or maybe it’s the two-man saw.
Do you think guys actually played this game in the ’50s?
Jumble ’em up, and may the best man win!
