My middle child received a thumb wrestling game as a gift from one of his buddies over the weekend. I didn’t even know thumb wrestling boards existed.
I suppose I’d never really realized the need for one, but now that we have one, I can see where it might even-up the playing field a bit and make the wrestling fair for all thumbs involved.
So far, it’s working out pretty good. I haven’t heard anyone cry “cheater”.
Although sometimes, in our house, the thumb wrestling evolves into a full on wrestling match. The kind of full on wrestling match that has to be taken outside.
I’m not sure what type of lead-in strategy the one in the PJs is utilizing. But I think it’s some sort of freaky sumo/taekwondo/karate kid/jujitsu/transformer/greco-roman style. He starts by showing his opponent his transformers clad behind. Perhaps this is some sort of shock tactic, meant to throw the opponent off right away.
But it seems to be working for him.
