We’ve been trying to do this date night thing on the cheap (figs and brie nonwithstanding) and we don’t own Twister. I asked all my local facebook friends if they had one we could borrow (no luck) and checked the game aisle of Goodwill several times.

Then we went to my in-laws for Easter this weekend and Thomas spied Twister in the game closet. Which led to…
What, do you guys just hunt eggs and stuff?
Playing Twister in my Easter dress.

Having your daughter man the spinner and your mother-in-law take pictures completely takes the flirting-while-Twistering option off the table, but it was still a lot of fun.

Our taskmaster:
Later she said to me "Mommy, I had fun playing Twizzle."
Of course, once we played with the kids we wanted to buy our own. It was great for Margaret to work on right/left (she knows which is which, but it takes some thought) and Paul to work on colors (his favorite is BOO). I think after all that searching I’ll end up just buying one from Target. Looks like flirting is back on the table.
