“If they ever come up with a swashbuckling school, I think one of the courses should be Laughing, Then Jumping Off Something” ~Jack Handy

I haven’t had a chance until now to write this post, but I’m doing it quickly because it needs to be done.  During our holiday trip to KC, we played a game called Wits and Wagers.  In essence, a question is asked, the players write down their answer and then everyone bets on which answer is closest without going over.  The discussions are fun and Amy usually has the best answer.

I don’t remember which question brought up this particular discussion, but Dan stated that he could long jump 25 feet.  Of course we all cracked up and Rob encouraged Dan to show us.  So our last wager of the night was how far Dan could long jump.  We went outside (9pm, Dec 26th), he did a few practice jumps (there was a lot of tumbling around), the family set up the course and measurments and he got 13 feet.  I think the world record is over 30 feet.  Dan has so much more fun with Rob’s egging-on than I ever did.  I hope this is a good thing in whatever business venture they explore!
