So there we were: a large group of family gathered on the deck at my parents' house. The food was gone and the conversations were waning. Aunt Becky the party gal stepped up to the plate and taught us how to play
THE VEGETABLE GAME.
Here are the rules:
Pick a VEGETABLE.
say 'broccoli!' or 'peas!'
Say the name of the veggie
(feel free to use 'rutabaga' here)
with your teeth covered and
your mouth open.
You say yours and then pass the turn along by naming someone else's vegetable.
The game goes on until everyone's out or until your facial muscles have had ENOUGH.
This was FUN!
Really, we're just a bunch of fruits and NUTS.
