On Saturday I was introduced to the newest phone time suck, a wonderful game called Draw Something. Basically you get to choose between 3 words, one is easy, one is moderate and one is hard and you have to draw a picture to represent whichever word you choose and the person you’re playing against guesses.
Things they don’t tell you off the bat is that the person you’re playing against can see your drawing in real time, so if, say, you draw and erase a car 18 times in trying to draw “pedal” the person you’re playing against will discover that you are an especially crazy brand of perfectionist even though your final product still looked nothing like a car. They also might quit their game with you. Just saying.
They also don’t tell you that you cannot play this game in a quiet room because I have yet to sit down and not laugh out loud. It is HARD to draw on a tiny screen and some of these clues are genuinely impossible. Hats off to anyone who can draw Kanye well, because I totally failed.
Once I discovered the hilarity, I started taking screen caps to share. Because some of these were too priceless. Please know that I am not criticizing anyone’s drawing abilities, in fact, to make you all feel better, I’ll lead with 2 of my awesome pictures. Basically I’m Picasso you guys.
And now onto drawings I got to guess, of which I’m not going to give you the answers, because you should have to struggle like I did.
And there you have it. This is why I spent the last 3 days laughing maniacally to myself.
