My friend Mary and I dominate at the game Taboo. DOMINATE IT. This might seem really braggadocious but I’m allowed to brag about it because it’s true and really, how arrogant can I be if I’m bragging about being good at a board game? It’s not like I’m saying I’m the best writer in the world (I’m not) or the most beautiful (Ha!) or the funniest (Wocka Wocka is my life force) so I think it’s ok for me to brag about being really really good at this one thing. Especially because it’s a team effort so really I’m bragging on Mary too and that’s just being a good friend. Need further proof? You got it!
In case you aren’t familiar with Taboo, object of the game is to get your partner to guess the word on your card without saying it or other related words (It’s like a more complicated version on Password and also it doesn’t have Betty White). Some of these can be really challenging because it’s hard to get someone to say “Double Chin” without saying “fat” or “face”. Get it? It’s lots of fun and if you haven’t played before I would highly recommend it, also if someone says a word they aren’t supposed to say someone gets to press a very annoying buzzer and that’s always enjoyable.
So, Mary and I were playing Taboo the other night and I was giving the clues, then this happened.
Me: She. Is. Everything.
Mary: Barbara Streisand!
And you know what? She was right. That’s the only clue I had to give. She knew exactly who I was talking about. That’s true friendship folks. Then when Mary was giving the clues, this happened.
Mary: Old women…
Me: Soap Operas!
Again, score one for the unbeatable team of Mary and GotC. I think you can see now that I wasn’t exaggerating our Taboo prowess. Also, we’re really good at Scattergories. You’re jealous aren’t you? You totally are.
