Give me a...

As a child, my family moved quite often. From Chicago to Arizona, then on to Oregon. A short stint in Colorado led us right back to the Chicago area. In order to visit family, we would have to travel cross country. Sometimes we would take a plane, but often that meant a road trip. Ah, the road trip. Hours and hours and hours trapped in the back seat with my brother. My little brother. My stinky, annoying, obnoxious little brother. There were only a few things that kept all out war at bay: books, travel sized board games, and Mad Libs.

Something about Mad Libs was wildly entertaining. The sillier the word combinations, the better. When a randomly chosen noun or verb fit logically into the story, you were disappointed. It just wasn’t as much fun. Apparently, part of me is still that same 9 year old girl, because the Mad Libs have not decreased in entertainment value. These days my friends and I have been known to write our own. There was the Mad Libs story of how my best friend met her soon-to-be husband for her bridal shower. There was the raunchy erotic Mad Libs we whipped out for the bachelorette party. Add a few glasses of wine (or tequila) to that scenario and you have the makings for laughter induced tears.

Don’t believe me? Well, here is your chance to experience it first hand. Today I need your help to complete my post. By 5:30 tonight I need suggestions for the following:

2 prepositions
3 verbs ending in “-ing”
5 adjectives
body parts (3 plural, 2 singular)
2 adverbs
1 verb
3 past tense verbs
1 sound
1 emotion
3 colors
2 scents

Once I have your suggestions I will plug them into my pre-selected story excerpt and share the results. Tonight you can pour that glass of wine (or Jagermeister) and chuckle along with me.
