Question of the Day #159

You'd think that after delicious pork roast, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese and roasted veggies, it would take a crane to get us off the couch, right? Oh no. All it took was The Easter Bunny saying, "Okay. The beer is hidden. There are two Bud Lights for everyone here and a bonus Bud for one lucky winner. On your marks, get set, go!"

We ambled through the kitchen to the deck easily enough. Like this whole thing was no big deal. But once each of us filed through the sliding door, the competition was ON!

M elbowed R and slid down the stairs past him. Spotting people plucking bottles from deck corners, I blew past my competitors out into the yard. GB and K scoured raised beds. A yelped in delight as she snagged the Bonus Bud. My heart raced. I was empty handed! I inspected the nectarine tree. Was that a bottle next to the trunk? Yes! Score!

We were grown men and women, willing to body chuck each other for beer.

The Easter Bunny didn't mess around. She tucked a bottle between couch cushions, stashed beer in the BBQ and hid treasure in the rafters of the upstairs deck.

And after much scrambling, serious competition and uproarious laughter, the Easter Beer Hunt was over and everybody was a winner.

It's crazy how something so silly got us crazy competitive. When's the last time you got competitive when you didn't expect to?



  1. The beer hunt sounds so fun! I usually don't go all out to win when I play games with my kids, but my oldest is a smarty pants so now I have to competitive to beat him! My husband and him are crazy competitive with each other on the video games, it's funny.

  2. What a fun Easter hunt! I may just do this for the adults next year...

    As for competitive, all you need to say is Wii Fit--I'm determined to get this bugger to admit I'm fit.

  3. What fun!!! I'm sorry we missed it!

  4. Looks like you had a lot of fun :).

    Playing monopoly with my family. I hate to lose from my husband ;p!

  5. Oh, that looks like fun! Glad you had a great time. :D

  6. What fun!

    I can't really think of a time that I got all competitive like that. I remember one year, when my girls were little, we took them to Disneyland and had brunch at the hotel on Easter. Instead of an egg hunt, they had a "candy scramble" where they tossed candies all over an area and let the kids collect it. Some of those kids were little monsters! Parents were blocked off, but I'd have liked to hop the fence and knock a few of those little brats down.

  7. Your bunny is much cooler than our bunny.

    Scene It? with MK, the voice-over king. It wasn't pretty.
