I understand how scissors can beat paper, and I get how rock can beat scissors, but there’s no fucking way paper can beat rock. Is paper supposed to magically wrap around rock and leave it immobile? Why the hell can’t paper do this to scissors? Screw scissors, why can’t paper do this with people? Why aren’t sheets of college ruled notebook paper constantly suffocating students as they take notes in class? I’ll tell you why, because paper can’t beat anybody. When I play rock paper scissors, I always choose rock. Then when somebody claims to have beaten me with their paper I can punch them in the face with my already clenched fist and say, oh shit, I’m sorry, I thought paper would protect you, you asshole! - Anonymous.

Remember when we played Hopscotch!

The jump from 6 to 9 was always the toughest, somehow always managed it. Played till the end.

Never said 'No' to another round.

Ready to challenge even the 'Greatest' of players. [the old kids!]

However, after the bruised knees and elbows, sometimes torn jeans, hand-in-hand with our enemies for game otherwise best of friends... we used to walk back home feeling euphoric and clutching tightly that "Winning Stone".

That was when we were 10. Now 7-8-9 years down the line, remember when we got drunk!

The mixing of vodka with whiskey is the toughest, somehow we always manage.

Never say 'No' to another round of shots.

Ready to challenge even the 'Greatest' of drinkers. [the boys!]

However, after the tumbling over chairs, falling on the floor, banging into the door, shoulder-to-shoulder with our forever-friends, holding some tonic and rejoicing the moment (sometimes not remembering them tomorrow)... we never dare walk back home.
