Since Jen's conversion to Android, we've been enjoying some spirited play on the app Draw Something. For those unfamiliar with it, Draw Something is like a game of pictionary that you play on your phone. We don't have the best history at playing the actual pictionary game but Draw Something has proven surprisingly entertaining. Until I received this:
With Draw Something, you are given the number of letters in the word and a selection of letters that contains the answer. I could not figure it out. It wasn't a dog, it wasn't a fox. Was it some kind of mythical creature? You have the option to blow away letters that aren't part of the answer to narrow down your available letters. I did this. And I was horrified.
The only possible answer with the letters in front of me was "CHICKEN". No. There had to be some mistake. This thing has FOUR LEGS! It CAN'T be a chicken. I couldn't bring myself to type in that word. Instead I confronted Jen, showed her the picture she had drawn, and begged her to tell me that this wasn't a drawing of a chicken.
Jen responded with 5 minutes of tear-inducing, near-maniacal, laughter. I guess I had my answer. I sighed, typed in "CHICKEN", and resigned myself to using much more of my imagination in this game than before.
