Dean and Shannon used to play board games at CATH Inc on Sundays and I'd occasionally joined in. We managed to have 'game day' earlier this year and wanted to squeeze in another one before the end of the year. Some of my favorite people were around the table at the newsstand.
We played Apples to Apples, "the hilarious game of comparisons." I played the game on Christmas Day with a group that ranged in age from 8-80 and took things literally. This group of writers -comic (Dean for this morning show), song (Tad and Cara), business and otherwise (Tammy), short-story (Shannon) and music (moi) and fun people (Sarah) had a much more raucous time.

I think we were all hopped up on coffee and grilled cheese sandwiches. The card labeled "black hole" turned in to a laughing-so-hard-you-can't-breathe joke.

It was a fun, wholesome (except maybe for that black hole card) alcohol-free way to spend Sunday afternoon.
