Oregon, Day 2: SponTUNEous

Hi y’all!

So, today we just chilled for the most part. . . But, we played this game called SponTUNEous!

So, it’s kind of like a verbal form of charades.

You start off by naming a word. Let’s use “eye” for an example.

So, I would say “eye” and everyone else had 15 seconds to sing 5 words of a song that include the word “eye.”

And when there’s a tie, you battle out with insanely crazy words like “Polaroid” or “often.”

The first person to sing 5 words wins the ability to roll the dice!

They then roll two dice and advance that number of spaces on the board. But, there are spaces where you’ll draw a card with crazy challenges on them.

Sounds simple enough, right? ๐Ÿ™„

Well, if you happen to get the word “often,” can you name a song off the top of your head with “often” in it???

Yeah, neither did we.

But, if you think back carefully, you’ll remember that Arabian Nights from Aladdin has a lyric with “often” in it.

Remember. . .

“Arabian nights, like Arabian days. . . More often than not are hotter than hot in a lot of good ways. . .”

It was so much fun. . . Except for the fact that I don’t actually listen to music, so it was REALLY difficult for me.

I was ALWAYS in last place. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I just listen to Disney songs and Christian music, so I couldn’t name ANY songs with the words that my parents and friends were using.

And, on top of that, I can’t sing, and they all CAN, so they kept expecting me to sing the lyrics when I would chime in.

The thing is, the game is actually marketed as a “no talent required” game, so I technically didn’t have to sing the lyrics but I felt bad just because they can sing great and I can’t.

Anyway, I shouldn’t let it bother me. And, I typically won’t let it bother me, but when they bring up the fact that I don’t or won’t sing the lyrics, it kind of crushes a piece of my heart inside.

But, it’s okay! I know it’s not my talent and that’s okay!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

It was a good day today. . .๐Ÿ˜

I’m going to be sad when they have to leave, but it’s okay!

Because we’ll see them in a month and a half after they leave!!!

They are the reason we’re going to Texas in January. . . At least part of the reason. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚

I cant wait for tomorrow’s events!

  1. โ™ก …and the person who uses the word ‘I’; the English language sucks to the max, at least the French have different words for ‘Je’ et ‘Oeil’
