Boys And Their Toys

My 10 year old son is having a friend stay over tonight.

Of all the electronics and movies and gaming systems we have, can you guess what they’ve been happily playing with for over an hour?

A cheap, netless (it was shredded long ago) Dollar Store plastic basketball hoop hanging from a closet door.


I would have been insanely jealous to have his room and all the stuff in it at his age (hell, I am now. He has the largest room in the house). There’s even a nicer door hanging basketball hoop he bought with a Christmas gift card.


I suppose I should be happy they’re being active instead of rotting in front of a game or movie.

And I would be…if only it didn’t smell so much like sweaty boy in the living room.
