Stairball is this awesome game that you can play at my house because we have a wide stairway.  We have a narrow and steep stairway, too, but those are the kitchen stairs and they’re good for other things. Like hiding, because they’re haunted and nobody dares search there.

Stairball is a good time to talk about awkward stuff, because if you get misunderstood, you can always say, “That’s not what I meant.  You didn’t hear me.”
