Get more Feel Good Friday at The Girl Next Door Grows Up.
Are you familiar with the children's game "Hedbanz?" Each player wears a headband with a card stuck in it, that all other players can see. Then players take turns asking questions in order to figure out what they are.
It comes with a list of suggested, logical questions:
Do I have legs?
Could I be a pet?
Can I swim?
Do I make noise?
Can I fly?
Am I a vegetable?
But when you are eight years old, you don't need suggestions. I sat in the living room last night, listening to Aliza and the little neighbor girl playing Hedbanz, and they went back and forth asking questions. They started out right away with specifics.
Am I scissors?
Am I a basketball?
Am I dice?
Am I a spoon?
Then they got the hang of it -- general questions will offer clues to your identity. So they began with:
Can I be chewed?
Am I slippery?
Am I boring?
Am I invisible?
And then it started to go in an odd direction.
Do I have wood on me?
Can I be rubbed against the wall?
And I couldn't take anymore. I fell on the floor laughing. And immediately got up to start writing it down.
People, I could not make this stuff up. I wish I could.
