"I BONKER YOU, MOMMY!"
- You get to physically aim and hit each other with objects with no concern as to actual harm coming to them thus allowing you to let off steam with each other and not in a harmful way.
- There's little else to mention because the above is such a powerful release but I feel compelled to place another reason here: IT'S FUN! There! That's a good reason! :)
Drawbacks to said game:
- When you don't understand that this game doesn't transfer to other circular objects such as large balls and you attempt to play said game with your Aunt Lisa who is in the middle of breast feeding your cousin, Charlie, when a ball is volleyed at her head. (FYI - you missed and she laughed it off - but this was an example of a DRAWBACK to this game).
- When a balloon pops and sets you to crying because the act of the volleying off of a person and then an EXPLOSION?!? A little much for any kid to take....
Still. I can't be convinced that there isn't a more cathartic effect to this game - at least for me - and so it continues. Ready.... AIM.... BONK!
Ahhhhhhh! Much better! :)
