We’ve been playing a lot of dinner games lately. Last night’s game was…spirited.
We had a Funniest Family Member Contest. Each person had to think of something funny to do: a song, funny face, joke, anything.
My three-year-old, Mase, wanted to start things off. He chose a song. It was hard to decipher the tune because he was laughing so hard, but I think it was the ABC song, sung only with one repeated word, “poop”. That’s my boy.
I was next with my amazing goat impersonation. You’ll just have to imagine.
I had high expectations for my husband. He can be quite hilarious. I think he must have had a creative block. He chose to make armpit noises. Yes, all of the children had to try it out. (sigh)
My seven-year-old, Dani, gave an acting performance. She took a bite of food, chewed it up, then her head dramatically slumped down on her plate. Death by food poisoning.
And, Evie, age five, had the coveted last spot. She looked ready to burst with excitement over her anticipated joke. And here it is: “Never say hamburger. Never say hamburger.” That was the entire joke. She nearly fell over laughing.
Afterward, we had a somewhat secret vote. Everyone, except me, was suppose to close their eyes and vote twice. Despite some cheating, there was only one clear winner.
Happy 4th of July weekend!
