no fun zone

these days,
we seem to have entered
the no fun zone.

it is kind of like the twilight zone,
without the unexpected twist.

the kids get out a toy(s)
then spend the next hour
arguing, swapping, dealing, wheeling,
fighting, jawing, taunting, defending,
debating, swindling, jabbing, dodging,
weaving, yeah, i could go on,
but you get it.

i am the referee.

and all this just for
the set up!

they never make it to
actually PLAYING.

it's exhausting,
well, for me anyway.
they spend all of their time -
setting up,
choosing sides,
picking pieces,
assigning roles,
and then POOF!

they move on to something else.
nothing left but the mess.
cue creepy music.
