I Got a Perfect Score

I love to eat at Cracker Barrel Restaurants when we travel.  They have a game on every table to play while you wait for your order.  It’s the wooden triangular board with the holes and tee-like pegs.  You jump over a peg one at a time, the goal being to have only one remaining peg left on the board.  Your intelligence is rated by how many pegs you have left when you can’t jump any more tees.  One remaining tee means you’re a genius.  I succeeded in leaving only one peg three times in row.  I humbly accept my genius status and I will never play that game again.

Yep, all of the above, plus I didn't have my reading glasses and I still did it three times except for the peg in the wrong hole! :-)

The one at our table is always sticky with syrup.

I watched my husband doing it and was going crazy knowing he was making all the wrong moves. He usually makes all the right ones! ;-)


Nope. We don't need no stoopid IQ tests. I eat at Cracker Barrel and that's enough to prove how smart I am.

New rules: If you think you're a genius, you are. We don't need no stinkin' IQ tests!!

I'm terrified to even pick the thing up again!

Smartypants. I got confused just reading about how you're supposed to play that game. Guess I won't be down to one tee anytime soon.
