Chuck a Rama

Last night the challenges were made, the smack talk commenced and the Gauntlet thrown down.  We had one of our crazy competitions and it was who could eat the most plates of food last night.  Chuck a Rama was the venue of choice.  Keith upped the ante to not just bragging rights but with a $50 Walmart gift card.  You can imagine the excitement.  So to make it a little fair there are some handicaps allowed like in golf.  Out 9 year old got a 2 plate handicap and out 12 year old got a 1 plate handicap.  I managed to eat 7 plates of food.  First 3 plates were the lite stuff.  Salad, jello and shrimp.  Stayed away from the scones and bread, they fill you up too fast.  I didn’t drink anything but water.  I had my strategy, it was sound and how I usually defeat everyone.  I out lasted a Keith and our daughter.  Our youngest tied me with his 2 plate handicap but our 12 year old was a beast.  No more cheating with handicaps for him.  He takes us all down with 8 plates.  Didn’t even need the freebie.  I thought I was going to hurl.  Made it out to the Tahoe and dropped the seat back so I could breath.  The champ wanted to go to Walmart after dinner.  I think all of us were like are you kidding?!   It was fun but clearly there is a new Champ in the house.  I won’t take him on again.  Family…isn’t it about time?  Easily could have been a Mormon commercial lol.  🙂
