So, did anyone ever play Red Rover as a kid? You know, where a bunch of kids make two lines facing each other, then one side yells out, "Red Rover, Red Rover, send Tommy (for example) right over!" And then Tommy runs over and tries to bust through the locked arms of the opposing team/line? (Well, if not, it's a real game, OK? I played it as a kid, and I'm lucky I didn't get my arm ripped out of the socket, but that's not the point.)
How about the "telephone" game? Where kids get in a line/circle, and the first person whispers a message to the next, and then the message gets passed down the line until it reaches the last person, who then reports (what's left of) it out loud to the group?
Yeah, well no one knows the true origins of either of these (odd) games. I, however, have a theory...
Red drover? A corgi? Get it??? (You know it could've happened!)
P.S. That red "Rover" in the clover? It's 13-week-old Jon Farleigh (in a tape crown), about 15 minutes after he became a permanent member of my family. ♥
