There shall be laughter.
At least that’s my thought. Tonight my life group got together for dinner before our split. We had a dozen show up, which was a nice number, but there were still a few regulars missing. Somehow we divided into two groups for games, and the shrieking laughter commenced.
I was in the table group (floor group played Taboo) playing Catch Phrase. And like Taboo, there are some strange answers that were thrown out. Like when I was trying to get them to say Frog’s Legs. I said Kermit and made some reference to the first Muppet Movie (where he was wanted for a restaurant for Frog’s Legs, but these girls are either too young or too uncultured to have seen the glory that is The Muppet Movie. **Sigh**) One girl, convinced she had the answer, screamed “crabs”. We lost it.
Or the time someone was trying to get her team to say “Peace Pipe”. She used hippies to get to the word peace, but when she said this is something you smoke the shouted response was “a joint”, which had us rolling again. (I guess you had to be there.)
But the absolute best was when we were all upstairs playing Apples to Apples, and our fearless leader won the round with the word Touchable. Her card, that was thrown in, “My Body”, which to a bunch of women had us screaming with peals of laughter even though she meant it in a totally innocent way.
I love these women. I’m going to miss them in the off weeks and I truly look forward to having every monthly dinner with them so that we can get together. What a great way to start off the new sessions!
