The first game involved getting a cookie from your forehead into your mouth without using your hands and I knew I was in trouble. I almost walked away at that point, but since I had already walked over there I figured I should at least try once...and I got it right away! So I got to move on to round two with about half the other people. The next task involved getting 6 penne noodles onto a piece of uncooked spaghetti and again, I did pretty well! I was not the first one done, but I did it fast enough to move on to round three.
The third task involved emptying a box of tissues one at a time using only one hand. I also was not the first one done here, but finished in the top three so I got to move on again. At this point I was pretty shocked. There were only three of us left and I had made it this far so I was feeling pretty confident!
It was down to me and two other people and the last task was knocking 6 empty soda cans off a table using rubber bands. The first several rubber bands I shot went nowhere near the direction I was shooting them. The wind would take them or my aim was just off until finally I hit the cans straight on...and my rubber band just bounced off the cans and they still stood there on the table. So then I decided to start shooting five rubber bands at once and finally they started falling (when my aim was decent at least). I ended up knocking the last two off with one shot and won!
I seriously couldn't believe that I beat everyone there that played! Anyway, I got to pick my prize from a table of prizes and I got an iTouch! Other choices were an Xbox (we don't play video games) and gift cards to various places in town. It was a good day at the pool :)
