So the other night I was playing with Beau and he had a map of the United States. He was asking me the names of all the states and I was answering him, no problem. Danielle was right there and I told her I bet she couldn’t write down all 50 states. She scoffed at me laughingly and totally was up to the challenge. She was sure she could not only list all 50, but she was positive she could do it waaaaayyyy faster than me. We laughed about it for a minute, then I put together this document and it was game on:
We both got our pens ready and went to work. We silently filled in our sheets, me totally expecting Danielle to be killing me and Danielle expecting the same. Turns out we both capped out at about 40 states in a short amount of time, then over the next 25 MINUTES I managed to fill in 4 more and she got 9 more. But neither of us could finish!
This whole idea spurred from my addiction to Friends and the episode where Chandler gets everyone to play this same game. After re-watching that part of the episode, I didn’t realize there was a 6 minute time limit to the game which makes the whole thing even more amazing to accomplish. Give it a shot, spend at least 6 minutes on it (if not more). Then give this YouTube clip a watch, it’s pretty dang funny, especially after trying to do it.
