PLACE: My brother’s house
SUBJECT: Answer slips
We celebrated my nephew’s birthday at my oldest brother’s house this evening. It was the last night spent with my California brother and his family before they fly home tomorrow. We ended up playing a game called “Things” – basically everyone writes an answer to a posed question and your job is to match up each player with the answer they gave. It didn’t take long before the “farts”, “poops”, “boobs” and several R-rated phrases appeared in the written answers – usually in duplicate. And, since apparently all of us have the intellectual maturity of a 12 year-old boy, we giggled and snickered each time they were read. ‘Cause that’s how my family rolls.
