Ring Ring!

I have no excuse (except a crying dog, a huge turkey, a cat who screams and six million piddle spots to clean up ) for not posting the last two days! To apologize I will write an entire post geared for just one person! WooHoo! Viva La Laziness!

(start copy)

Remember when we were kids and at every opportunity, some adult would have us play that silly Telephone game? You know… the one where the lead person comes up with a sentence or statement, whispers it into the ear of the next person in line, and the sentence is passed from person to person until it reaches the end of the line. The last person then repeats the sentence out loud, the first person announces what it actually was, and everyone gets to laugh about how goofy it got by being passed from ear to ear and being altered because of mispronunciations and hearing ability.

Of course I realize that the game was simply a means for adults to keep us in line while we were waiting for something or killing time. Haven’t we even now as adults, tried to use it on our own kids?

Being the silly kind of fracas that I am, I’ve decided to create an internet version of the game, and use it as an opportunity for link-getting. Everyone wants links, and yet lots of people I know, prefer to get their links in a non-obvious kind of way. We’ve all done the “copy this list and create a post and you’ll get links” type of tag… at least once, but most of us don’t want to fill our blogs with those posts. It may get links, but eventually will chase readers away.

This is a fun way to give your readers something entertaining to read and get a few links too.


If you’ve been tagged, check the last entry on the list. Copy this entire post, add your name and link to the end of the list, copy the sentence in the previous person’s entry and change ONE word in it to try and change the meaning of the sentence for your entry. Name and link only ONE person to tag and then post the whole thing as a new entry in your own blog. Please make sure to transfer all the links to your post otherwise you aren’t providing fair linkage to the people before you. Although this will take longer to get around, by tagging only one person you will avoid making mass enemies by having to tag many people, and it will also guarantee only one true version of the game is circulating out there. Fracas, the creator, will attempt to keep tabs on the game and periodically report on it.

Please try not to tag someone you see is already on the list. If you’re on the list, have been tagged again by someone who didn’t pay attention to the instructions and you don’t want to do another turn, please leave a comment at this post over at Fracas, and Fracas will take your turn for you in order to keep the list going.

I didn't understand this post. Should I be worried about that?

I've never been nude anywhere near a waiter or under the water with more than one person who I did date but did not scratch... I'm not sure what I just or if it was true or not.

Hey...FYI...you made me sick. I don't know how...but you did! I have a cold and I know it's not from going out drink and dancing on Saturday. It feel like something Canadian. Why? Why did you make me sick?

I'm with Fab. WTF?

And thanks for not posting for a couple of days. I wasn't in the mood to read blogs.

Mr. Fab and Nobody need to get out more - what a great idea.

I really love you for tagging me, but I got a headache reading all those rules. What if I mess up and wreck the chain? Can I do it next Monday and if I can, should I tag Fab since he doesn't get it either?

LOL. There aren't a lot of rules. You just play by changing one word and don't tag more than one person. If you don't want to play, you don't and I take your turn.

I understand Mr. Fab not getting it, but you Shelli? LOL.

And thanks blue, for playing!
