Insert interjection: If you want a blessing.. please please go to my friend TJ’s blog at www.writingforhisglory.blogspot.com She is an amazingly gifted writer (even though I am biased as her best friend I promise you she is!) She just wrote an incredible post about NO regrets. And you wont regret reading it .. ok.. end of commercial break.
So right now my family is in the midst of a tough goodbye and I needed a good laugh… and we sure did laugh as we got together last night to play apples to apples. Have you ever played? The basic gist is this:
In the game there are GREEN cards that are Adjectives.. like shown here..
And then there are nouns like shown here.. in red card form
How the game works is each person takes turns being a judge. The judge draws a green card (adjective from the box) It could have any sort of word on it. Some of the ones I won last night American, unhealthy, principled ect. Everyone who is not the judge picks out of their 7 red cards in their hand a noun they think fits that adjective (I know i know.. don’t lose me in the English language here) For example say the green card said stinky: I would put down cow-pies because what’s more stinky then a cow-pie (and I know because I landed in one thrown off a horse one time)
The judge then picks the red card he likes the BEST and that person wins the green card for that round. So you win by getting the most green cards.
The fun part about this game is you learn to play the judge. Like TJ learned real quick that hunter and her had the same sense of humor, so she would play funny off the wall ones when He was the judge. Evelyn was the most sensible judge.. katherine could go either way.. and jenn would always pick the craziest ones that made her laugh the most.
The more you knew the judge the more you could win. (I will add in the end Hunter won because I picked his card BARNEY for some crazy word that I cannot remember what it was)
I know this may sound crazy but I got a spiritual truth out of this game.
