We were invited to dinner at a friend’s house last night.Â There were seven of us all together and I had met all but one of them at least once before.Â Last time we played a game called Loaded Questions.Â I remember having to make people repeat things again and again when it was my turn to guess who said which answer.
Last night we warmed up with a quick round of Apples to Apples, which I won, even though I was trying NOT to win after I got to 3 of the 5 cards needed.Â Someone actually gave me the point for throwing ‘Cabbage’ in as a match for ‘Casual’.Â What??Â I really like Apples 2 Apples though because you don’t need to hear much at all.
After that we played Trivial Pursuit for hours and hours and finally around 12:45am Don and I won.Â If I focused on lipreading the person who asked the question I could usually understand most of it.Â Easier than it used to be for sure.Â Some of the questions were of course easy and those usually blew by me, asked and answered, before I figured out what had been asked.Â The questions that were impossible and got repeated a few times I heard.
I’d like to get together with a group of 6 or so people sometime to see how I do with more random conversation. Games have always provided more enjoyable gatherings than just sitting around talking, but I’m curious to see how I’ll do.
