Why ShallowGal and posse really need to get out more

Scene: the dinner table.
Cast: SG's posse and her unofficial fourth child, 13 year old Anna.

Noa: Let's play 20 questions. I'll go first.

SG: Is it Harry Potter?

Noa: No it's Hannah Montana.

Jake: Noa!! She had 19 more questions. I'll go. It's a person.

SG: Is it Harry Potter?

Jake: Yes. Anna's turn.

Anna: It's a person.

Noa: Is it a Jonas Brother?

Anna: Yes.

Noa: Is it Joe Jonas?

Anna: Yes.

SG: Oooh, good one. OK, my turn.

Jake: Is it Harry Potter?

SG: Damn.

Anna: Wait, I have one.

Noa: It can't be a Jonas Brother.

Anna: That severely limits my choices. Fine, it's a girl.

Noa: Is it Hannah Montana?

Anna: This game sucks.

I had one turn where I chose Hilary Clinton. Told them it was a female, not on the Disney channel and all 3 of them sat there slack-jawed trying to think how someone could be famous sans Disney channel.

Throw Derek Jeter in there and we have played that exact game. Laughing about Hilary Clinton!

I think I've told this story before: we used to play "what am I?" One of us would give 3 clues and the rest of the players would have to guess what the object was, i.e. "I live in the sea, I have 8 arms, I eat crustaceans. What am I?"

When my daughter was little, her 3rd clue was *always* "and people like me." No matter what the object was (our dog, a car, a loaf of bread) she always said "and people like me." We gave her such a hard time once when the answer to the riddle was "cement" and she'd given the clue "and people like me." She was such a goofy little girl : )

When we play 20 Questions at my house, they say, "Mom, no fair being any of your Blog 'Friends', ok?"
