Don't blame me. George started it.

It was early Tuesday evening. I was in the corral doing chores 
and George and Alan were trying to convince me to play with them.


Alan: Come on, mom. Pick up a cone. This is fun.


George put his cone on top of Alan's back.

Alan: Take that off. What do you think I am, a detour?

Me: Now I get it! All you had to do was tell me the rules and I'll play the game.


George: You misunderstood. This is not what I had in mind.


Alan: See what you started, you jackass?



George: Hey! Get back here! I'm not going to play this game alone with her.
She cheats.


Me: So the object is to see how many cones you can put on top of the other player, right?


Lucy: I hate to perpetuate stereotypes, but you look like a total ass.


George: Why, yes, I suppose I do.
And so do you, now that you mention it.


Lucy: She's going to pay for this.


Lucy: Treats. Now. Or we're never playing with you again.

  5. I hope George, Alan and Lucy's patience with your antics, oops games, were well rewarded. It is amazing all the things cones can do. Can't wait for the next installment of the Cone Diaries.

  20. Tell George & Allan that they are in VERY exalted company with this game!

    There is a statue of the Duke of Wellington in front of the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow & he regularly wears a traffic cone (and it's nothing to do with the number of student in Glasgow, honest!)

  26. I bet that cost you a whole bunch of treats. How is the world did you get them to stand still enough to get a photo? I can't hardly get my iPhone app on before I have a nose in my viewfinder, let alone balance cones on head!

    (you can tell me. It's Velcro, right?)
