Episode 70: What is the Pictionary Word?

Did the title of this post capture your attention?  I hope so!  :)  I made this card for my Dad's bday.  It's from a memory of a family inside joke.  The main story is we were playing Pictionary and it was my Dad's turn to draw.  He drew an image of a path leading to a volcano, with lots of trees around and village people going up the path carrying a virgin sacrifice.  It sort of looked liked this:

Here is an up close look of my sacrificial virgin.  Aren't I just a fabulous artist?  lol

(First, sorry the section where I'm trying to put the stamp on is so long, I thought I had edited that out.  It wasn't until I was watching it tonight that I realized I didn't).

So what was the word that my dad pulled?  Sacrifice?  Village?  Nope!  Volcano!  Yep, my dad drew a whole scene for the word volcano AND he barely even had time to draw the volcano before time ran out.  No one guessed correctly on what he was trying to draw.  It was so funny and we've never let it go since.  :)  So what was your guess of what my Dad was trying to draw?

I love it when a family can laugh about a story like yours (and laugh about it for years). My family also played Pictionary and we too had many moments like your story. Thanks for sharing! =)
