Cornhole Queen of the Cul-de-sac

cornholeThe majority of my time spent in gmail is deleting email after email promising younger looking skin, higher monthly sales, and improving my health.  Needless to say, when I received an invitation to a Memorial Day cul-de-sac party being put on by the neighbors, I opened it with great anticipation.  Who doesn’t want to be invited to a party, especially when one has no part in the planning.  Sign me up!

This party is different from our usual annual Memorial Day cul-de-sac shindig, though, in that it involves crawfish and Cornhole.  I’ve never had crawfish (not sure it’s ever necessary for me to try it) and I’ve never played Cornhole.  The crawfish aspect of the invite didn’t appeal to me but it was the moment that I read in the email that the person who won the Cornhole game would be crowned the winner, and would retain bragging rights of Cornhole King or Queen, for a whole year, that I decided to become Catherine, the Cornhole Queen of the cul-de-sac, 2017.  It’s good to have goals, right?

Yesterday, I bought a regulation-size Cornhole game and I’m waiting for its arrival via Amazon.  Regulation sized.  Hilarious.  I’m going to practice daily until May 28th, the date of the party.  I’m sure I will drive everyone in my family with the ‘thunk,’ ‘thunk,’ ‘thunk’ noise the beanbags are going to make for hours on end.  And later today, I’m going to Google how to play the game; this is newsworthy because I don’t play games, or at least I don’t play video games.  Yes, I have no idea how to play or what the rules are, but I’m going to be crowned Queen.

Wish me luck and stay tuned for the outcome.

UPDATE:  Despite using Amazon Prime, the Cornhole game is not expected to arrive until Friday.  Sigh.  That means I will have to do the whole Rocky thing and practice for hours on end, sweating, cursing, jumping rope…all in 9 days.  Thanks, Amazon.
