Egg Hunt Coup-2010

The flyer said 10:00am SHARP!
We were there on time. In fact a surprising number of people were there on time.
It's freezing!!
10:05...10:10...no starting gun.
The volunteer high school kids start a game of Simon Says to keep the kids occupied until someone starts the hunt.
Simon says hop on one foot...Simon says hop on the other foot...Simon says STOP!
The next thing we know half of the kids have run onto the field and are gathering eggs.
I think they thought he said START! instead of STOP!
Anyway, I pushed Addi into the throng.
Finally "starter guy" shows up perplexed.
The children (and parents) laugh menacingly as they have just staged a coup at the Inglemore Easter Egg Hunt!


Where's Addi?
(moments after the "STOP" signal)

Ill-gotten booty.

Wow, Addi looks cold! We actually had beautiful weather here for a change. Love her jacket!

Heh, heh, heh... Don't they know the best way to play Simon Says is to disobey Simon?
...Amateurs!
(LOVE Addi's pink coat! Do they make them in my size?)
