Blanket Creativity with Fort Fun
When was the last time you built a blanket fort? If you were in grade school, then you are in good company. Most adults do not start to do these playful things again until they have kids of their own. The wheel turns and the fun returns. Keep it simple. Use a few blankets, pillows, and a sofa or a couple chairs to drape them over to secure the structure. Then, decide on what you will do, too. Whether you binge watch a movie series like Harry Potter or set up for the Super Bowl, think of your entertainment. Also, you might even put a board game or a deck of cards in the middle of the tent and go media free for an afternoon. Finally, consider the fun snacks, or even a meal, you’d like to build along with that tent. All of this works out best if it is prepped the day before – or even that morning- so you can just have fun.
Prepping to Kick Back
In the very lively read, Thug Kitchen Party Grub, anonymous authors, M.H. and M.D., give street-smart guidelines for setting the scene: No matter how old you are, sometimes you just need to get in your pjs, and have a (vulgar word) movie marathon. Their suggested menu is vegan with names heavily peppered with swear words that will not be reproduced here. That being said, some of the foodie ideas spun for this jam include Chex-ish mix, a big veggie salad, sloppy joes, and fudge brownies or banana and coconut pops for dessert. If you are a sensitive type, just build the fort and crawl in it. However, if you can handle the R-rated dialogue, then check out more recipes at the Thug Kitchen website at https://www.thugkitchen.com/recipes
There is no journal writing today – unless you really want to do it. Best use your time and creativity to set up a blanket fort, grab your grub, and hang out with your friends. Recharge, relate, and rest. But most of all, have fun.
