For one more, ‘Hey, Aunt Brandi.’ The pill had enough poison to kill 10 adult males.”

They made fun of our girls from the get-go. 6-year-old’s. First graders! They don’t keep score! But these parents – they were relentless. Within 2 minutes of this game, I knew this would be a whole different experience.”
