Hailey (6) was playing a driving game on my phone. I kept kissing her soft cheeks. She said quietly “control yourself. I can’t concentrate… but I know you’ll say you can’t cause I’m too cute!”
Category: parts of a car.
Olivia said a bumper.
Joy said that’s not a car part. What?
Why else would the carnies have called the ride bumper cars?
Just for making my daughter feel bad for absolutely no reason, I told Joy that for the letter R, category -a name of a country, we are going with “Womania.”
She said, that’s pronounced Romania. It needs to start with an R. I said “but it does! That’s just how your daughter pronounces it. So WE get the point.”
Scattergories game part 2
This game you need to come up with words per category for the letter that is rolled in one minute. If you have the same word as someone else, no points for you. But they have to make sense.
Category: Things that are plugged in:
Joy said dildo. With such conviction, she was convinced she was right and deserved a point.
Charlie: Pretty sure logistically that would be difficult. Cumbersome even.
What if you blow a fuse;)? (which might be the point… but not the house fuses.) I’d like I hear you explain that to your husband.
Before electricity, did they use a crank to get it running? Then a generator? Women must be really thankful for the invention of batteries.
This game you need to come up with words per category for the letter that is rolled in one minute. If you have the same word as someone else, no points for you. They have to make sense though. I’ll send a few blogs this week from family members that has me wondering about them.
Category: given as gifts/presents
Joy said wrapping paper.
Charlie: Not my idea of a good gift. Maybe if it came with scissors and tape. Now that’s thoughtful!
Next blog on this a little risqué. Sorry.
It was game night but my family was so into eating. May was like “are we ever gonna get around to playing games?” So I said “Quick! Let’s do rock, paper, scissors while we wait.” So she got up and walked closer to me. Others were sitting on the floor. She helped yourself move along the maze of people by playing a short game of duck duck goose.
We’ll get to the ridiculous outcomes of the Scattergories game we actually played in another blog.
A bewildered overwhelmed employee in a department store was tasked with putting a huge assortment of luggage away on the shelves. She looked like she didn’t know where to begin as she stood in the center of the chaos. I walked by and asked “going somewhere?”
Has your cheek ever accidentally touch your phone screen and hang up on people? It’s the other definition of FaceTime. It’s your face’s way of saying “time’s up!”
I hate when it happens. You never know how long you were rambling before you realize no one is on the other end listening anymore. You just talk and talk and think to yourself, “wow! My friend has become a really good listener. She must be totally into my story!”
