Wade and I decided to be social tonight. We drove up to Greenville for ice cream and games at Lindsay’s house. We knew Lindsay and Mandy from church. Everyone else was pretty cool – especially Mandy’s brother. The ice cream was yummy. Wade was silly. The new people were nice. The others wanted to play “Psychiatrist” and made Wade go outside. Then they continued talking about other things. By the time we went to get him, he had walked the neighborhood and met all the neighbors. The game of choice ended up being “Catch Phrase” which we all enjoyed.
There were also a few rounds of freestyle paper, rock, and scissors. Wade and I created this game on a plane ride long ago. The only rule is you can’t be divide-by-zero. Sometimes we have themes, but it is more fun when there is no limit. Most people are hesitant at first. No rules is a little intimidating. They quickly realize the key is to have a good argument about why your thing would beat the other player’s. It doesn’t really matter what you are.
