Today on the way home from swim camp, Ava shared the following story with me:
“Today, we played Stinky Cheese Man.”
“What is that?”
“It’s like tag and nobody wants to be the Stinky Cheese Man.”
“Were you a Stinky Cheese Man today?”
“No, I ran away. I was fast. Logan was the Stinky Cheese Man.”
How unfortunate for Logan.
When I was kid, I remember playing “Kick the Can”, “Ghost in the Graveyard”, “Hide and Seek”, and of course “Tag.”
I guess times have changed and the Stinky Cheese Man is king of castle.
I will say, I miss the traditional terminology of just being “it”.
