On Thanksgiving, we participated in a heavily competitive game of Apples to Apples.
- If you’ve never played, for each round, one person is the judge, who lays down a card with an adjective on it. Then each player lays down a card with a noun and the judge picks the one which fits the adjective the best. (Or is funniest. Whatever works.) If yours gets picked, you win that round!
- For example, if the card was “awkward”, you might lay down your “Helen Keller” card and win at life.
Joel: Okay, the word is “selfish”.
(Joel turns over the cards one by one. Based on crowd reaction, I assumed “mosquitoes” would have it. They are awfully selfish, as it happens. However, the final card to be turned over happened to be Lucy’s.)
Joel: And the last one is… lobster.
Lucy: Get it? Because they’re “shellfish”!
(Yeah, she won that round.)
