This is my post for the letter T in the Blogging from A to Z in April Challenge. My theme is plants.
This time I have perhaps chosen the obvious flower beginning with T. I could have chosen teasel.
Do you know the game (requiring only paper and a pencil for each player) called Country, Town, River? Each player has the same list, which begins Country, Town, River and continues Flower, Fruit, Vegetable, Boy’s name, Girl’s name. A letter is chosen by selecting a book and calling out a page number, a line number, a word number and a letter number. Then the players are allowed time to think of one of each of the items on the list beginning with the selected letter.
The scoring is done like this. If only one player has a particular word, they score the number of points equal to the number of players. Two having the same word score the number of points equal to the number of players minus one. It works out that if everyone has the same word one point each is scored.
It was popular in my family when I was young and might explain why I do not always pick an obvious example for flowers.
The tulip was growing in our garden. Teasels grow near the kingcups.
There are very short posts on Sue’s Trifles for the A to Z in April Challenge.
