Tic Tac Toe

I have been babysitting my two grand daughters, ages 4 and 5. While the oldest one was in kindergarten, I thought I would check my e-mail at my daughter's house. Hailey, the four year old was standing next to me at the computer, hoping I would hurry up so she could play her Care bears game. I got an e-mail from Tom, my brother in law. It said to click here, to play Tic Tac Toe. As I did, Hailey asked me what it was. I explained to her it was a game, called Tic Tac Toe. She loves games, so asked me how it worked. I explained as I did it for her.

This one, was a joke which I didn't know at the time. As I put my second or third "x" on the grid....a huge scary face popped up and SCREAMED at us! She and I both screamed and jumped! Then she began to cry. I hugged her, and told her I was sorry...and explained it was a joke and I didn't know it. Through the tears, she said.."do it again Grandma!" "Do it again?" I asked. "but it scared you!" "Yes," she said...."do it again."

So I played the game again, it screamed...she screamed and cried....and said "do it again, Grandma. We did this about 5 times or more! Each time she screamed, cried, laughed...and said do it again. I have never seen anything so funny in my life! It scared her each time, but she loved it:) I finally had to tell her we had to go pick up Sara from school...or she would have made me repeat the game a hundred times! THANKS A LOT TOM!

Here's the game:

That is too funny! I'm not gonna try the game 'cause I know I'm already a very jumpy person.
