Travel Games for Grown-Ups

Travel games are usually thought to be diversions to keep kids from complaining during road trips, but grown-ups certainly need them, too. When we're in the car for lengthy periods of time, we play a bunch of made-up games without equipment required. We'll play a musician game, where you have to name a musician based on the last letter of the last person's musician (Steven Tyler is followed by Travis Tritt, for example). We'll also do a movie quotes game where one person chooses a quote and the other has to guess the film it's from.

Silas's celebration

Enjoy life's surprises

One Saturday morning in mid-summer, when I was twenty-something and lounging around my apartment after work, I received a phone call from my friend, Silas. He said, “The party’s on, pack an overnight bag and come on down to Love Field; check in at gate 22 by 2:00PM.” He then promptly hung up and didn’t answer my return call. I gave a moment’s thought to whether Silas would pull a fast one on me (he would) and then I thought about the possibility of him jesting about having a party (never in a million years).
