I spent the afternoon playing with my balls.

Balls of all the primary colors your television-diminished imagination can handle. Bocci ball is a game of precise skill. Competitors huck large wooden balls at a smaller ball. Whoever gets the closest to the smaller ball wins. It doesn’t require any running or sweating and can be played under the influence. Hence its appeal in the weatherhousehold.

Monday’s Forecast: Aside from the blunt head trauma when competitive rivalry got too fierce, I’d say it was a successful game.
