One time I was playing Pictionary and my partner and I won an all play when he drew quotation marks and I yelled “parentheses!” which was actually the word, but he was all wasted on Scotch and I was just stupid.

I was playing with my husband and Father-in-Law and they both still make fun of me for that.
