Memory Lane Friday is a weekly blog carnival to preserve your memories for your family. Each week has a different topic, but you are welcome to write about any memory you'd like and link in. This week's theme is "A Game". Any type of game. Board games, football games, Atari games, kick the can - you name it!
The game I remember we just called 'the coffeepot game'.
I think we got this game from a book of car games that we had for long road trips (we had a little RV). The game is simple. One person picks a word and the others try to guess what the word is, by substituting the word 'coffeepot'. So say the player is thinking of the word 'skiing'. The conversation might go like this:
"Can you coffeepot at night?"
"You can coffeepot at night, but it's not typical"
"Can you coffeepot in the house?"
"If you coffeepot in the house you might get in trouble"
"Can you coffeepot outside?"
"Can you coffeepot in the summer?"
"It depends on the type of coffeepotting you're doing"
Now I don't know what it was, but this game was always full of laughs and we never seemed to get sick of it. It certainly made the drive go by faster!
Participating in Memory Lane Friday is easy. Just grab the code beneath the button and copy/paste it into your blog post. Then come back and add your link to Mister Linky.
