Everyone married couple should have one

Went to a birthday party at PUMP IT UP. It was great. Gary and I have been bickering over stupid things lately like who is making who late. I am sure he is making us late when we go out as a family and he begs to differ. It was on the occasion of one such argument that we were fortunate enough to be on our way to a place where we could settle things. Old school. Pump it up baby! Oh ya, I hauled my fat butt into one of those little kid bouncy things and challenged my dear husband to a match or two. I dawned the sweaty head gear, without fear of germs, and picked up the giant boxing mittens. Okay so round one he got me. He tagged me so hard in the ear that I got a headache. But if you know me you will also know that I wasn't going to drop it. Round to the jousting table, it is the one above with that padded thing in the middle. You have to stand on it with these big foam logs and try to knock each other down. I so won. To see that 6 foot one man tumble backwards legs flailing in the air totally helpless was good enough for me!! In the end I lost, I went down quite a bit more. Again he hit me so hard in the side of the head he gave me a headache. I don't care what they say about the safety of those foam things they hurt! We ran the obstacle course and he won that too. But I had fun trying. I hyper extended my knee, got a burn on my elbow, nearly dislocated my shoulder, and twisted my ankle. I was and am sore. My friends husband also twisted his ankle and last I heard is still limping. It was worth it. I left feeling refreshed and ready to go. Everyone should own these tools of matrimony, it would make life so much easier.
