A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

LET THE GAMES BEGIN

Here's one for you.

Another Colorado elementary school has banned students from playing tag on the playground.


Seems schoolchildren there have complained they were harassed or chased against their will. Officials believe the game causes a lot of conflict.

Well la-te-da ... life's one tough game.

I read about a woman who e-mailed her elementary school boyfriend after 40 years just because she was "thinking about him." He fell for the desperate housewife's ploy until his wife intercepted their rather intimate e-mails and forwarded them to the ex's husband who then tracked down her Internet lover and beat the you-know-what out of him.


The first man's wife filed for divorce under some mental cruelty charge and was awarded almost everything the couple worked for their entire lives. The husband was out on his @.

And the woman who started it all? Well, she was last seen chasing down her high school boyfriend.

Tag, you're it!

I guess "duck,duck,goose" and "monkey in the middle" are banned ,too? Racial profiling? Politically incorrect? Sexual harassment? How did we all survive our formative years?
