Snomovision had won Round 1 for the day. But I thought I could win Round 2 for the good ol' days.
"Hey, I've got an idea," I said.
"What?" said one.
"What?" said the other.
"What what what?" I mocked them.
"What what what what what?" They were jumping up and down now.
"It's a game we used to play called Track 'Em Up," I said.
"How do you play?"
"Well, we have just what we need, a fresh snow. All we do is go over to one of the islands. I start running and you guys count to a hundred, and then you try to track me in the snow. To win, all you have to do is see me."
It sounded good to them, though I did have to include a snowmobile ride to the island as a bribe. And I knew what was in their minds. After humoring me through my silly game, they would try to get me to take them for another marathon ride.
