Our family’s rendition of the Super Bowl party
Deme and I are happy to be included in the Kingsley family’s annual Super Bowl get-together and chili cook-off.
Now, a chili cook-off may sound like a simple thing during a Super Bowl game, but this family owns the Coney Island restaurants around Tulsa and they all make excellent chili every day. So, it’s slightly intimidating to enter their contest for the best chili.
Tonight, chili entries were submitted by Chuck and Pope; Michael Kingsley; Deme; Alex; and Barbra. First time contestant and fiancé to Barbra, Alex came out the winner and took home the trophy. Congrats Alex!!
Best thing about Super Bowl evening with the Kingsleys is that the guys watch the game in the den and the ladies visit in the kitchen. Tonight’s kitchen entertainment was Cranium, a fun and interactive game guaranteed to make you do silly things.
Sophia and Allison teamed up; Barbra and Kate teamed up. I was on a team with Evonne and Pope. If you’ve never played Cranium, you should try it. It’s a combination of trivia, cherades, drawing, humming, sculpting and more.
Sometimes the artist has to close her eyes while drawing. Sometimes everyone playing gets to guess the answer. The humming was definitely fun, as well as acting out a person your team-mate has to try to guess.
Barbra did an excellent impression of Clint Eastwood. Pope stumbled a bit over humming “Stop in the name of love,” and Evonne drew an awesome King Kong that I couldn’t guess. We invented a few dances tonight and Barbra got her aerobics in.
Sophia and Evonne are the natural artists, although Kate sculpted an excellent burger. Pope is the wordsmith and Allison is the dictionary. Most amazing win was Barbra and Kate’s drawing of the toucan, guessed in less than ten seconds.
Eventual winners of the Cranium game were Pope, Evonne and myself.
Oh, and we heard that the “Saints” won as well. Coincidence?
