Sometimes when Mel and I get bored, we like to play the “Who’s First?” game. It works like this: One of us says, “Who will do [activity] first: [name] or [name]?” and the other person has to guess. The activity can be anything we want, though it works best if it’s something we expect most people to do at some point. The names must be people we both know, and can be either individuals or married couples.
Activities range anywhere from getting married, going bald, falling off a bike, or having plastic surgery to having babies, getting fired, getting arrested, or getting a job.
Sometimes it sort of feels like we’re just gossipping about our friends. Maybe we are… but we only do it because we like them.
