This morning, as I drove young Djangolina to school, she outlined for me the rules of a fun, new game called "Red car, blue car". These rules are simple to elucidate - one player looks for red cars, the other for blue cars. On seeing a car of the specified colour, one cries out "RED CAR!" (or indeed blue car, as the case may be), while hitting the other player on the arm.
Djangolina took the blue corner, I the red. Every time any car of blue-ish hue hove into view, she would cry "BLUE CAR!" and slap me.
Whenever a red car appeared, she would swiftly interject "NOT THAT ONE! IT'S BURGUNDY!" or similar. The final result was - Djangolina - 24, Daddy - a bruised arm.
Was her conduct within the spirit of the rules?
