We spent the evening with some sweet friends last week, and just as the evening was winding down, somebody said, “Ohhhh….you can’t leave. We haven’t played ping pong yet.”
I thought, “Ping Pong? Seriously? Coool.”
So we stayed and they played and boy was I in for a surprise.
My kids were actually–good. Don’t get me wrong. These people from my household are good–spectacular even– at plenty of things, but we don’t have a ping pong table.
We’ve never had a ping pong table. So how did they just all know how to play so well? Hmmmm?
Cause I could have sworn I knew where these dudes have been for the past few years…but now…
I’m not so sure.

Growing up in Kansas City, KS we had a ping pong table in our basement. You know for all those tornado warnings and such. Anyway we spend hours down there playing and bonding as a family. It was so much fun!
That would’ve been fun to see! 🙂 I like to see them having fun together. I wonder which of their friends let them practice. 😉 Maybe that’s something we’ll have to look into getting someday. 😀
Looks fun! 🙂 What a bunch of good lookin’ guys! 🙂
We used to play on break at work. Dane played there a lot too on the night shift. His supervisor was really good, and so was his team lead, so Dane got some really good games in there. I remember once on the crazy 24 hour shifts going on break to play ping pong at 3 or 4 in the morning just to stay awake until the “end of the day.” Crazy times.
We had a ping pong table when I was growing up – it really was a lot of fun. And I know how you feel about “do I really know everything my kids have been doing?” because when Dave got home from his mission we went bowling for a first date and he got a strike in every frame but one! We were all convinced he’d been on the European Pro Bowlers Tour for 2 yrs instead 🙂
Yeah…we saw a ton of “golfing” shots from the Scottish mission that one of our family went on. Such a mystery. Hmmm…
My “kid” came home from his mission an amazing ping pong player. He even had to have a special paddle. Of course, he served the Chinese people and it seems to be their national past time. Someday I will have a ping pong table and I will practice so that I can beat my “kid”.
