“Go Fish” Fryday

I was in a meeting this week with some other wives, and this idea came to us through laughter and tears, the good kind of tears from laughing too hard.

One friend had her toddler in her arms eating a cupful of gold fish crackers, when she spilled the whole cup – all over the table, floor and few down her shirt. We laughed as she was trying to recover them, when I suggested she just wait until tonight and let her husband “go fishing!”


Then, we had the idea to hide a gold fish somewhere on your body and invite your husband to “go fish!” Wouldn’t he have fun talking about THIS fish story! Well, maybe not talking to anyone else but YOU, but guaranteed he would have fun.

From there the comments continued:

  • Put a sign on the door that reads, “gone fishing.”
  • Put a bumper sticker on his car that says, “I’d rather be fishing.”
  • Hearing him talking about a real fishing story of the “one that got away,” then winking at him and whispering, yeah but what about that Big One you caught!”

So, you can see how our conversation went from there. Who knew that a little box of gold fish crackers could be so much fun. I’ll bet you smile the next time your kids ask to play Go Fish! Just tell them only if ย their daddy will play! ๐Ÿ˜‰
