A Silly Game

Last night as we were sitting on the futon I picked up my cell phone and started cruising through the contacts. I told Phil to tell me when to stop. We stopped on my aunt Deani and I told Phil to say something nice about her (a very easy thing to do since she is extraordinarily nice). Then I did it again. After a few minutes, he picked up his cell phone and played the "game" with me. It was so FUN! We said nice things about friends whom we don't think of often enough, family members, members in our branch, etc. We both had to say something nice about Phil's office-not the people with whom he works, his actual office which is a bit industrial looking and kind of stinky (a little more difficult than Deani). He had to say something nice about my OB/GYN and I had to say something nice about his Oncologist (both women are very nice so those weren't so hard). Phil even got to say something nice about "Free Info" (what's not nice about helpful information that is free?) Seriously, it was probably only ten minutes total but it turned out to be a really fun way to pass those ten minutes and it made us feel good to say nice things about people.

What are some of the silly, but enjoyable, ways you have passed time?

It's posts like this one that remind me how much fun it was to be your roommate. I'm so glad you have a blog (since we both know that this kind of stuff probably wouldn't make it into a phone call or an e-mail).

Isn't that the truth about blogs - that this fun tidbit about your life usually doesn't merit a phone call or email. That is why I love blogs.

To pass the time I admit I have used John as a crutch lately - he is so entertaining and good natured that if you give him direct attention he will usually give something in return.

This usually involves me describing things around him, making up a song, or some kind of peekaboo to get him to laugh.
