Not a single comment on my Buddha's Birthday extravaganza!
Very well. Here goes:
This is a game I play with Sally. She says "Guess what?"
and I answer with totally silly suggestions until she gets bored of my randomness and just tells me what's on her mind.
(We stole this game idea from my dear friend Tiff, who just got married, and also, is awesome.)
Here are some examples:
"Hey Rob! Guess what?"
"Your elbows are growing teeth."
"You learned how to pick things up with your toes."
"Gravity will stop working from 2-4pm on Wednesday for maintenance."
"From now on, all you need is luck instead of love, and the Beatles song will be changed accordingly."

After that epic meltdown in game five (an own goal in an elimination game? Come ON, Canada! That's humiliating! As humiliating as visiting your wife's aerobics class for a session and collapsing! [backstory to that comment]) I get to explain the phrases "meltdown" "go down in flames" "choke" and "crash and burn" as well as "mental toughness" "resilience" and "clutch" (in the negative) to my students today. At least the MVP (and all the stars) on the winning team was Canadian.)
