Here's a fun game: bite bag

How to burn off a few of those merlot-induced calories and really make your quadriceps sore. Oh, and it's a great ice-breaker. Perfect for the next company picnic.
Here's a fun game:  bite bag

The bag.

Providence.  17 Jan 2007.  Dave teaches Mel, Lydia, and me a new game.

The rules

  • Put a paper shopping bag on the floor.
  • Stand on one foot, bend over, and pick up the bag with your mouth.
  • Each person does this.
  • Cut a couple inches off the top of the bag.
  • Repeat.

Sounds easy, eh?

The contestants

Dave Mel Lydia Nate

The failed attempts



Ok, I confess. These are just the highlights. There were in fact more failed attempts.

The successes

These were more rare, and thus harder to capture on camera.  Everyone made a good effort, and the competition was pretty close for the first few rounds.



More successful attempts.

The champions

After the bag got down to just a few inches high, Dave and I decided to call it a draw.

Bite bag champions

Yeah, I don't know about this picture.  It's pretty dorky.  But hey, we're totally bite bag champions.  So there!
