Kelly and Fernando taught us a game that's a cross between pictionary and telephone. You think of a phrase and draw a little picture to represent it, then you pass your picture to the next person, who writes down what they think you drew. They pass their phrase to the next person, who draws it...and so on, until the end when you discover how warped your original phrase became. So the contest is: who can guess what the phrase was in the top photo? You get three drawings to help you guess!
The next photo is Akiko, my lovely friend who I miss. And then the last picture is little Itsuki celebrating his triumph over Lucas after having successfully pulled him off of my lap. They played so nicely together, and Itsuki started saying some words in Spanish (Lucas's stuttery little a-a-a-a-agua) and...well, I wish I could say Lucas picked up some Japanese, but alas, he did not. He did, however, eat seaweed.
(If you read into that last sentence a little, it may or may not help you with the contest. Emphasis on the may not.)
*Unless there are multiple winners, inwhich said offer is null and void. Unless I feel like it. ;)
