Want to play a game?

This is a stolen line from the movie, War games. No one under 40 will remember it. I toyed with, here's an easy thing to say, here's an easy game to play, as an alternate title. No one over 4 will know it, because this is stolen from the Dr. Seuess book, Fox in Sox. But I am staying from my game.

DotBlogger and I have played this off and on. We find it quite interesting.

Here's how it works:

I will give a word, and you post a comment with a simple sentence using the designated word.


Don't read others comments before you post your sentence. Here's an example.

Word: Fire.

Possible sentences:

The boss is going to fire me. (Termination)
The house is on fire. (Flames)
Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes. (Shoot)

So, want to play?

Let's use:



PS: I am not just using this as a way disguise for begging for comments...uuuhhh.

I am under forty and do remember war games...classic.

After work I like to wind down with a beer.

My husband identifies his passing of wind as "Ducks."

Oh - and I'm under 40 as well, and remember War Games AND Fox in Sox.

(and can I say 'and' a few more times?)

Though the wind shaketh me, yet will I stand.

Also wanted to say that your comments on my blog really touched me... "my eyes had water in them" as my 6 yr. old would say when she doesn't want to admit she was crying. Thank you for your words of life.
