so you know how i mentioned that i was feeling over-saturated in “biracial” the other day? well, that evening i went to visit some friends that i hadn’t seen in a long time. i was excited not only to see them, but to leave “biracial” at home and just enjoy the night. about 15 minutes after I got there my 6 (almost 7) year old friend, Ben goes to get something to show me. he comes back with the game “othello”. now Ben and his younger brothers might have more toys than any kids i know. i just could not believe that of all of things he’s acquired in the year since I’ve seen him the first thing he wanted to show me was this game where one person “is black” and one person “is white” and you make strategical moves to overtake the board with your color. i guess there’s just no escaping it.
after othello we made an origami ball. Ben is already a master origami-ist (i am sure that’s not what it’s called), and he taught me how to do it. He made four sides in the time it took me to make two. that being said, i think i did a pretty good job. and it was really fun!
