Misiu, a kid at heart, loves to play games with our girls. That works out well because the kids love to play with him too. Misiu’s latest favorite game in entitled “Breżniew is always right”.
Would you like to play?
Misiu: We are playing “Breżniew is always right” and I am Breżniew.
Lizzie: (always agreeable) OK.
Misiu as Breżniew: Pick a number.
Misiu: 6. I win! Pick a number.
Misiu: 9. I win! Pick a number.
Lizzie: (thinking intently the highest number she knows) 17!
Misiu: 18! I win. Breżniew is always right.
Lizzie then tried out the game on me.
Lizzie: Mommy, I am Breżniew. (not a sentence I thought I would ever hear from my daughter)
Me: Pick a number.
Me: 12! I win!
Lizzie: But Mommy, I am Breżniew and Breżniew is always right.
Misiu to Lizzie: Tell Mommy to be careful. She doesn’t want to find out what happens to people who outsmart Breżniew.
