sweeping the nation

Being the born geek English major, I love me the word games - Scrabble, Taboo, Scattergories, but especially Catchphrase because gestures are allowed (I have a tendency to talk with my hands a tad). Last Christmas, my cousin got us the electronic version (thanks again, Amos!) and the kids & I play informally every chance we get.

During Thanksgiving break, we were going around when I got "restroom." I said, "When you're in a public place and you have to pee...." Paige yelled "BATHROOM" while Mason shouted "TOILET," so I nodded and went on: "Alright, so if you get tired and you want to lie down, you're going to _______." Mason: "SLEEP! You're sleepy!" I tried to wave him off that line and repeated the part about being tired plus the public place to pee. My boy was at the point of no return in his own mind and shrieked with utter authority, "SLEEPY TOILET!"

I laughed until I cried. Ah, good times.
