The other night, as I lay in bed reading, I looked over at my bedside table and realized it would make the perfect "tray" for this game. So, I took a picture.
I propose we play this quintessential shower game via Blogger (humor me, please, I didn't have a bridal shower before I got married. *cue tears*). You don't have to play, but if you do, it's gonna have to be based on the honor system.
Look at the below pictures (two, to help you see everything a bit better) for 30 seconds (or one-half minute, you choose), then turn away from the screen and make a list of all the items you can remember in 1 minute. No peeking back at the screen unless you want to condemn your pinky finger to H.E.double.hockey.sticks for 5 years.
Compare your list to the list way below the pictures and see how many you got right. Whoever gets the most items right in 1 minutes, wins! No, you don't win a prize, just the satisfaction of knowing you won. And a big Congratulations from me! Yippee!*
Ready to play? Okay, set your timer for 1/2 minute (or 30 seconds) and here's the "tray" (imagine me removing a brightly colored striped kitchen towel).
* multi-colored "4" booklet (it is front and center in the first photo)
* white ring box
* yellow Brooke coaster (her face is covered)
* 2 Smarties wrappers
* 2 ear pugs
* Detroit Lions cup
* clock radio
* box of Kleenex
* foot cream
* two used tissues (I don't have a nearby garbage)
* blue nail polish
* match box
* stationary box
* stationary card
* french Book of Mormon (bottom of the stack of books, extra points if correctly identified)
* Home Remedies book from the 1990s (above the BoM, extra points for correct identification)
* Norwex catalog (can't wait to get my order!!)
* Pink Norwex receipt (sticking out of the catalog)
* WSU Veterans Affairs business card
I'd like to say that my dresser has been cleaned off since taking the picture, but I'd be lying. In fact, it now has the addition of my glasses on top of my Kindle. I was wearing them at the time of the picture and wish I would have thought to take them off, since that is their home most of the time (their case is housed separately on my dresser in the closet). However, I DID throw away the Smarties wrappers and used tissues. I'm not totally disgusting.
Hope you had fun!
*I contemplated giving something away but decided I'd probably forget to send the prize to the winner. This way is easier and less stressful. :)
