Last night was a family night of Pictionary - the charades game of drawing pictures as other people guess what you are trying to draw. Even the worst artist can have fun at this game - the mind compensates and quickly assimilates the object in question. And it is ageless - Ellen was the leader for most of the game.
It's magic - within seconds someone blurts out the correct answer. Well - sort of. The rapid fire guessing of any object quickly narrows the domain of possibilities as the competition escalates with each passing second.A picture is worth a thousand guesses.
