10. Tell us your favorite children's story. I don't really have one

11. Explain how to play your favorite game. One of my favorite AP Psychology games to play is Petals Around the Rose: explain the name of the game but they need to figure out the significance; use four or five dice and roll them: announce how many petals are aound the rose in the dice toss (but don't say how you got that number, that's for them to figure out)

Dice showing 3 or 5 have dots in the center of their face. These dice represent the roses. The petals are the dots surrounding this center dot.
For example, a die with a 5 on it has 4 petals around the rose. A die with a 3 on it has 2 petals around the rose. A die with 1 only has one dot on its face. It is a rose without petals.

#5 gave me pause, too. I felt like it should be easy to answer, but it wasn't.

It is easy to lose touch, isn't it? Especially in this new world of always being in touch. A "like" on Facebook isn't the same.

I would love to visit Ireland! So much beauty in the world. Loved your answers! Have a nice day!


Bev Sykes said...

It's interesting how many of us, Irish descendants, talk about feeling like we'd "come home" when visiting that country. I sure did.

I'd like to be your fairy godmother, and grant you that wish. 🙏
I missed everyone in our meme groups. You are all very dear to me.
Ireland calls me, too. Even the Scandinavians must feel that call, I think.
Them Vikings got around. 🤣

Have a great week, with no more ice storms!
