Today, my brother turned 28. What the actual eff.
He wanted to celebrate by having people over to play board games and he made his famous homemade pizza. My brother and sister-in-law have a pretty impressive collection of board games, but the birthday boy wanted to try out the game he’d just received for his birthday from his wife; Cards Against Humanity.
It’s like an R-rated version of Apples to Apples, an interesting fill-in-the-blank style game, and it is absolutely terrible.
It’s also heaps of fun.
But man, can it be awkward. Especially depending on who you’re playing the game with.
Yesterday, at my brother’s house, we sat down with my brothers, my sister-in-law and her parents. I don’t know her parents very well. But the idea of having to read out loud cards that said thinks like ‘Fleshlight’, ‘unreciprocated oral sex’ and ‘A sad hand job’ around a retired cop and my sister-in-law’s mom…
…but it turns out, it wasn’t awkward at all.
That and we quickly learned ‘Kanye West’ or ‘A sad hand job’ wins. Every. Damn. Time.
