There is a little game a few of the people in my family like to play. It’s called the mimicker game. Okay, it doesn’t actually have a name and that was the best I could come up with without thinking about it at all.

The way it works is this. One person talks or sings. The other sees how well they can mimic it in real time.

On Sunday, my sister and I started playing at the dinner table and we got told to shoosh. So we went in the other room and videoed our awesome selves where nobody would bug us having fun.

Because sometimes it’s just fun to have fun.

This is me with my little sister Ange, playing the mimicker game. I led, she followed.

She’s pretty danged good. Me, I can’t keep up with anything near that fast.

And one of my favorite parts… my little brother walking in at the end and telling us, “I don’t get it.”

PS. Anybody else do this with their family members? What weird things do you do with your family?
