Odds and Ends
So…I was checking out my website stats the other day and I found that someone has searched for me with the phrase, “author Bronwyn Green will remove her jeans.” Really? Well…I supose…if I have to pee. Bizarre…yet pretty freaking funny.
Yesterday, I spent the day at my mom’s. We had a big turkey dinner with all of the fam – except one of my brothers who was sick. After supper, my sister brought out a game she’d bought for the occasion. It’s called Apples to Apples, and it’s bloody hilarious! It’s a simple premise, each player is given seven cards with random nouns, both common and proper. After everyone has their cards, a judge is picked and an adjective card is revealed. You have to put down the noun you think the adjective best describes. Everyone gets a chance to judge and if your noun is picked, you get a point. The one with the most points wins.
Now, I realize that sounds like it could be dull, but if you’re going for irony or straight-up silly, it’s the best game in the world. We must have played for three hours straight, laughing hysterically the whole time. My brothers, sister and sister-in-laws are so freaking funny. I ended up with a headache from laughing so hard – but it was worth it. My sister’s partner won. I think her mutant ability is either mindreading or she just knows us so well that she knows what we’re going to find hysterical. If you haven’t tried this game, I highly recommend it.
