The ‘What was it?’ game

There’s a game we play at regular periods, usually one against one, but sometimes two on the same team. It goes like this:

“Do you think it was the pineapple?”

“I don’t know, I think it might have been the chicken.”

“It could have been the peppers you forgot to wash.”

“They were boiled though. Maybe it was some tap water left in the cup.”

“It must have been the pineapple.”

“I had that too though. Maybe it was the broccoli.”

And on, and on, until both sides declare defeat. No one ever wins this game, and the only outcome is one or the both of us battling fever, dehydration, and diarrhea.

Today Liz gets full distinction for the game bravely played!
