Throwback Thirsday - The Longest Fry Contest

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker 69190

Monkey and Bug

 

Years ago I arbitrarily started a Longest Fry Contest with my Son. The basic point was that anytime we had fries we would dig through to find the longest one we had and the square them off against each other to see who would be the last spud standing. Monkey being somewhat competitive by nature gripped onto this contest and will still take on any challenger to this day. He even passed the contest on to Bug, who herself has a pretty healthy love for competition as well. I think this fight resulted in a tie.

Hi  JL Boney, III,  I have 9 children - well adult children., five girls and 4 boys.  Although we came up with a myriad of ideas and games through the years to entertain and busy ourselves, your french fry contest was a new one for me.  Sounds like it brought fun into your lives on a number of occasions.

Oh, it's the simplest things in life that we will forever carry in our memories, JL!

I love the passion for competition that both Monkey & Bug have - the apple didn't fall far from the tree, did it?! LOL

Have a fabulous weekend!

I am not one who necessarily wants the longest but more the crispiest.
