THE CUTLERY GAME

The cutlery game.
Each person takes it in turn to say , truly, 'I've never XXXed' -- smoked a cigar, had a threesome etc etc,

Should be something as normal as possible since everyone who HAS done that gives you a piece of their cutlery.
You take it in turns, and try to collect all the cutlery.

OK I'll go first.

I've never smoked a cigarette (of any variety)

How do we count the cutlery?
Well try this way. After the first ten 'I've nevers' -- we are up to about six, anyone who can claim all ten wins! Otherwise we will wait for nines etc to claim. I can tell you I'm out of this; I;'ve played poker, gone to Spain, flown, etc etc.
Anyone still with a clean bill of health on all these?

At midnight tonight I'll close the list for the first round, restate all the 'I've never's in one email, give my count, and ask everyone else to say how many they have NEVER done.
Remember you want to pick a common things you've never done; if you say 'gone to Mars ' everyone else will also never have done it. You want to pick something common... like flying or smoking.... or threesomes.

So, Barry, is there a score you need to get to win a certain amount of cutlery - like a place setting? I'm thinking if the winner scores in the 40s they win at least a service for 8.

Is a firefly the same thing as a lightning bug?

asor
Asor  (Level: 156.0 - Posts: 589)
Wed, 16th Dec '09 2:11 PM

So...two summers ago, I was with my two sisters and our collective younguns. The children were desperately trying to catch a firefly in the backyard. My sisters and I stood in the kitchen, watching the children outside the window. One of my sisters simply cannot bear for her son to be disappointed (he had just turned 6 y. o. at the time); she was getting more and more distraught with the situation, trying to come up with ways to help him catch one.

It was at that moment that a bug landed on her kitchen wall. She flicked it with a (surprisingly masterful) swat of a dishtowel.

A second or two passed, and then we heard a zzzt, zzzt sound coming from the mangled up body on the wall. That would be the mangled up body on the wall that was now lighting up at regular intervals. Until it, well, stopped...

With therapy and the passage of time, she is now finally able to laugh about it...It didn't take ME any time at all!

Foogs,
Yes indeed fireflies and lightning bugs are the same.
Hard to picture a summer without fireflies! The whole east coast has them, tho the south has more maybe. Find a damp buggy place and wait for dusk.

Lodi, you need to come visit one of us in the East/South/Midwest one summer so that you can see the fireflies/lightnining bugs. We in Indiana at least, call them by the latter. May and June are best here. I'm not sure what they do later on.
