Andrew: Crowded House.
Me: C- C- Chaka Khan.
Andrew: Counting Crows.
Me: <sound of brain racking>
Andrew: Time’s up!
Me: Aw, give me another minute-
Me: All right, all RIGHT! 2-1 to you. Ok, D. Duran Duran-
Andrew: I’m bored. I win.
Me: What? You don’t just- you can’t make up the rules like that! The game’s not over!
Andrew: When’s it over?
Me: When we get to ‘Z’ or, alternatively, I win.
Andrew: Best of three, I win!
Me: You do NOT! If you refuse to come up with an artist beginning with ‘D’ you- you FORFEIT! You’re DISQUALIFIED!
Andrew: Let’s play something more interesting. How about . . . car models that start with ‘A’. I’ll go first: Alpha Romeo.
Me: I’m not- that’s crap-
Andrew: Do you give up?
Me: NO, because I refuse to engage in a game which is so weighted in your favour, not to mention TEDIOUS. I want to play a game where I have at least a fair or even unfair chance of winning. I will absolutely not be drawn into this.
Me: ASTON MARTIN!
Andrew: Heh heh heh.
