conversations with Pea, part the next

Me: How did your game go last night? Did you beat the dragon? (note: Minecraft end-game)
Pea: I did! I had to do it in bits. There are all these guys around who attack you if you look at them.
Me: Oh, so you had to pick them off before getting to the dragon?
Pea: No, it turns out if you wear a pumpkin on your head, they think you are one of them and leave you alone.
Me: But… but then you were fighting a dragon with a pumpkin on your head?!
Pea: Yah! I’m a bit sad I bothered to get that fancy helmet.


Pea: What sport do you want to watch? There is archery, table tennis, and air rifle on right now.
Me: These don’t seem like very sporty options for the Olympics. Archery, I guess?
Five minutes later
Pea: Woah, that was such a good shot! Now the Americans only need a 4 to win, that’s so easy!
Me: He has that crazy bow thing, describes bow attachment for wind stability.
Pea: Yes, and describes the tensile properties of the U.S. arrows knowledgeably.
Me: I like how we are experts at archery after 5 min.
Pea: It doesn’t look so hard.


Lather, rinse, repeat the second conversation, and you have our lazy Saturday, where we ate brunch and then watched Olympics literally all day. Glorious. Also, if you have not yet discovered women’s 7s rugby, try to check it out. The halves are 7 minutes long, and it is a ridiculously intense 14 minutes total.

    I’m really glad you made the time to do that. Watch some for me- I have yet to see a second and I can’t see that changing any time soon.

      Reasonable, and I have watched plenty for you so far. BUT! Also! All the events are available to stream online on demand from CBC, so you can potentially sneak in an equestrian fix if you have a chance.
