Ready or Not…

Even with my eyes closed while counting to ten, the scampers and giggles give away my three-year-old daughter’s exact hiding spot, but the funniest part, by far, is how she interrupts my “Ready or Not…”

“Daddy. I not ready.”


I’m not the first one

To face this situation

In this game.

I mean, it’s right there.

In the fabric of the game.

“Ready or not, here I come”

Part of the fun

Of hide and seek

Is not being ready.

Scrambling to hide

At the last possible second.

Good for hide and seek.

Bad for your Elevator Pitch.

Because there’s no excuse

For being surprised

When asked “What do you do?”


Just like in hide and seek

You know it’s coming.

And it’s easier than you think

To be fully prepared.

Here’s everything you need to know


Or not…
