Hillbilly Games

My kids have great imaginations. Sometimes that’s a great thing, other times it causes multiple trips to the emergency room. At our house we have “hillbilly” games. These games are like ordinary games but with some twists.

One of their favorite games is “Hillbilly Sledding.” This consists of using a common sled, like the one’s used for snow sledding. Each of the kids gets a sled and starts down my mother’s asphalt driveway. If they don’t fall off and have to go to the hospital, we have to take Mamaw for her heart palpitations. We’ve not had any bad experiences yet, just a few cases of road rash. And Mamaw is still with us.

Now another game they like is “Hillbilly Basketball.” Now I think this is just like regular basketball with a few extra rules. Like: no biting, no pulling people’s clothes off, no kicking, punching, headbutting or pantsing. But most times these rules get broken anyway. Bob has the worst time with all the rules, usually breaking the no biting rule in the first minute of the game.

They have many other “hillbilly” games they play, some of which include chickens, dogs, tobacco sticks, and duct tape. I’ve figured out that sometimes it pays not to ask.

Everyone survived, Bob just bit Alyson and Daniel downed Bob, resulting in him being carried off the playing field.
