There's a game me and my brother used to play on long car rides — "Cow", we called it. The game was about as creative as the title. The game was always overseen by Mom. She'd tell us to look for cows in groups — sometimes she wanted a group of four, sometimes eleven, sometimes she wanted brown cows, sometimes spotted. Looking back, it was pretty obviously a ploy to distract us until we dozed off, but damn if it didn't work.

I don't know why that memory came flooding back to me while I was driving down I-35 with my wife in the passenger seat, but it did. We'd been driving for 'least 3 hours when I saw a bunch of black-and-white cows in a field and remembered. I idly mentioned it to Sarah — I'm pretty sure the only reason she suggested we play it is because her phone had run out of battery. I started.

"Give me… three brown cows."

It was about three miles before she excitedly yelled out "COW!", and cows there were — three brown ones. She smiled at me before deciding her challenge.

"Hmm. Let's say two bulls."

"Wait, we're allowed to use bulls?"

"I mean… why not?"

"Fair enough."

It was a bit shorter this time, three and a half. I spotted a duo of longhorns in a field out of the corner of my eye and shouted my achievement. We both laughed at the silliness of it for a moment, then kept trading challenges.

Sometimes we solved them quickly, sometimes it took longer. We were both trying to make our challenges somewhat hard
