Stirring the Mush

You announce that you will be playing "Stirring the mush." Ask anyone who knows how to play not to share the rules.

You stand up, or sit down, or lie on your back, or stand on your head...whatever position you want.

You instruct, "Do what I do," then chant, "I am stirring the mush, I am stirring the mush, I am stirring the mush," while enacting stirring mush however you want (lazily, with hip action, with both arms, or a little finger, or your toe, upside down, with eyes crossed, whatever).

The next person will probably say, "I am stirring the mush" 3 times while copying your moves. The answer is a loud "NO, that's not right" by those who have figured out the rule. If a person is wrong, he or she has to do a forfeit.

It gets confusing, because someone can lazily say the right thing three times while just sticking out a finger and stirring the mush three times, while the next person can stand on his or her head and rotate his or her hips while saying the same thing, and both people can be right.

The hidden rule is you have to say "DO WHAT I DO" before stirring the mush.

Takes a while for newbies. Fun, but a bit long...it actually takes a long time for people to figure out the hidden rule.

Another game is with a pair of scissiors passed around and you say cross or uncrossed as you pass them to the next person. People think it is the way you pass the scissors but in fact it is if the legs of the person passing the scissors whether they are crossed or uncrossed. If someone guesses the reason they just carry on with the game - the last few people get very frustrated
