It's still fun, and everybody gets to laugh repeatedly.
My word was "mosquito."
Indicated one word with three syllables.
Third syllable "sounds like" and pointed to my toes.
Next I did a "sounds like"and pretended to be shooting clay pigeons.
Sure enough one of the players (whom I happen to have a secret crush on, but she's married, so let's not go there. LOL ) put the skeet and the toe together and shouted out "mosquito!"
So we ran off together and lived happily ever after. Or probably not.
Pray for me.
Yeah, Whirling Bliss is a thing. ;-) http://whirlingbliss.com
