My Dad LOVES dominoes. We were trapped into games as children. He'd bring them to the pizza parlor. He'd beg us to play with him at home. But we were his children... biological law requires us NOT to play dominoes with him until we are older and realize it's a good way to spend time together...
But my boys think dominoes is awesome. They keep score. They know the lingo (It's like a prison yard when a game is going on ...). They even have nicknames when they play.
Jack is "Action Jackson."
Neil is "Neil the real deal."
My creative sons gave Pa the nickname "The Pa."
Listening to them hoot and holler and smack talk each other through a game of dominoes is one of the best things my Dad does for me.
