Friday 5: Taboo!

This week’s 5 is inspired by the party game called Taboo, in which players must make their teammates utter key words by giving them clues. The twist is that each key word is assigned five Taboo words, and players are forbidden from using the Taboo words in their clues. For example, one key word might be milk, and its Taboo words might be dairy, cow, drink, white, and carton. Your clue might be something like, “It’s a beverage from Bessie,” or “You add it to coffee,” or “The land of BLANK and honey.”

Your task is simply to answer these five questions without using any of the Taboo words or phrases. Challenge yourself not just to avoid using the words, but to think of fresh, new answers to these sort of cliched meme questions!

1.Who’s making a positive difference in your life?
Taboo words: friends, family, husband/wife/spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend.

My boss--if only because that paycheck allows me to buy groceries and put a roof over my head, and that's postitive, right? (And did I mention I got a raise this month?)

2.Where would you like to be right now?
Taboo words: home, bed, anywhere but here.

Europe. France, Norway, Scotland...they're all good to me. *g*

3.What’s the first thing you’d do with a $5,000 (or your local equivalent) gift?
Taboo words: save, debt, vacation, payments, invest.

Update my passport and buy a plane ticket.

4.What super-power would you really like to have?
Taboo words: invisibility, x-ray vision, flying, strength, transform.

Not being seen--oh, wait...I already possess that power. How about mind-reading?

5.What’s your favorite sound?
Taboo words: laughter, music, ocean, wind, ____’s voice.

Falling rain.
