HOW TO DISMANTLE AN ENTIRE FAMILY

So the other night my sister buys a board game and demands that the entire family play. It's called Catch Phrase, and it's a pretty easy game.

It's sort of like the $100,000 Pyramid game -- you have a secret word, and, without saying it, try to get your partner/team to guess the word for points. That's it. It's very simple.

It's no Porno Password, but hey, fun shouldn't be measured.

I paired up with my father, while my sister paired up with mother.

Timer starts, my sister begins.

SISTER: NO NO NO, it's like pent up rage over something trivial, rather...

MOM: Mad? Angry?

SISTER: It's like when Dad goes to the hardware stor--

MOM: ASSHOLE? JERK? FUCKER?

SISTER: NO, IT'S LIKE... DICK, SORTA DAD ON A MUCH HARSHER LEVEL...

MOM: ASS? CUNT? BITCH? WHINY? BABY?!!?
*DING*

The word was "annoyed."

Yesterday, our family of four skipped an hour-long drive to Riverside (motto: We Stink Like Horse Shit) to visit some family. Thank goodness -- THAT would've been interesting.
