My mother came to visit this weekend, and it is always so nice to have her around. We went shopping, ate lunch, and lounged around in front of the fireplace just visiting. I didn't get any writing done, but that's perfectly ok.
Last night, my brother and his girlfriend came over for cake and ice cream since it was the girlfriend's birthday. She is already a member of the family and lots of fun to be around. When my daughter suggested we play a game of charades (defined as: A game in which words or phrases are represented in pantomime, sometimes syllable by syllable, until they are guessed by the other players), the girlfriend jumped right in.
As I sat there watching her and my mom and my daughter acting out these absurdly funny charades (and I did my own share of goofy moves), I thought, wow. This is so much fun. Why don't people do this anymore? It's so simple. All it requires is a handful of phrases or words written on slips of paper, and people willing to get up and act them out. No television. No remote. No stereo equipment.
When was the last time you played charades?
