Hurricane Gustav III - Board Games at Night

Most nights while on evacucation in Atlanta, the six of us – my sister, her husband, my parents, Carlos and I – played board games after the two kids (3 and 2 years old) went to sleep.

Over the nights, we played Loaded Questions, Taboo, Imaginiff, and Scattergories. All four were great fun.

Some highlights:

- For Taboo, I suggested the three teams be the three couples. (Awww. How cute.) Oh, I came out to my parents about a month ago. More details on that in another post.

The word to get to was “Disease”.
Mom (giving the clues, after quite a bit of time to get to this point): Sick very bad
Dad: Fatal Disease
Mom: Half of that.
Dad: Fatal
Mom: The other half.
Dad: Illness

From Loaded Questions –
Name the most famous person you have ever met?
Sister: Darius Rucker
Dad: Edwin Edwards
Mom: Patricia Clarkson
Carlos: Fred Travelina

I’ll let you look up those people on your own.

What is the first thing you notice when you initially meet a person?
Sister: Teeth
Dad: Smile
Carlos: Teeth
Me: Teeth
Mom (who was guessing the answers): “I guess I should brush more. I thought everyone would say eyes.”

If you would write a book, what would be the subject?
Carlos: My Life
Me: My childhood
Mom: Me
Dad: A Biography
