Croquet gets fierce

Handwritten page of a diary dated June 22, 1973

not sure why Lee and I are so competitive now. This is kind of like the conversation we had today after we played the most leisurely game ever invented:

My little sister plays a better game of croquet than you do.

Does she cheat like you?

She could play you and not cheat and still win. And she’s only 7. And by the way, there’s no way to cheat at croquet.

Then congratulations because you cheated just now. You cheated like a … cheating … cheater.

My little sister could come up with a better comeback than that while she was beating you at a game of … tetherball.
