drawing for dummies

February 16, 2009

we had family game night last night with the grandparents. so…we played pictionary junior. it was girls (3 of us) against guys (3 of them).

we played two full rounds and us girls creamed those boys both times!

and, hello! why wouldn’t we have? just look at our skills!

so…why don’t you all try to guess what each drawing is?

pic #1 – category = “in the kitchen”


pic #2 category = “doctor”

    The first thing that comes to mind for pic #1 is a mortar & pestle…but, then again, this is the Jr version and I shouldn’t think that would be in there, which leaves me with:
    1. a turkey thigh (!?!)
    2. a jug (look, it could be in some twisted universe…such as Australia…)

    For pic #2 I’m thinking stethoscope, though it also looks a lot like:
    1. a hose fitting spraying water (which you might find in a doctor’s surgery…think about it…)
    2. a hyper-powerful vacuum not just sucking, but causing all in its path to become airborne…which might also be in a doctor’s surgery, no really…

    1: Umm, Pepper!? Squash!? Gourd!? Bottle!?
    2: I’ve got nothing.

  3. February 16, 2009 6:26 am

    First one looks like a turkey standing on end.

    Second one – got me.

  4. February 16, 2009 6:55 am

    1. Congratulations, its a boy?
    2. The unibomber’s wilderness shack

  5. February 16, 2009 7:00 am

    Ummm. You got me.

  6. February 16, 2009 8:55 am

    1. Banana
    2. Stethoscope

    1. a pitcher
    2. a mamagram thingy

    really i have no idea!

  9. February 16, 2009 10:00 am

    1) turkey
    2) um… um………..

  10. February 16, 2009 10:12 am

    #1 one of those doohickeys bought via an infomercial?
    #2 treating ED?

  11. February 16, 2009 11:14 am

    Maybe you could turn it on its side and then I’d see something??? πŸ˜•

  12. February 16, 2009 11:49 am

    #1 has to be a turkey standing up and
    #2 looks to be a hairy wart

  13. February 16, 2009 11:49 am

    um… why is everything I want to say not appropriate?

  14. February 16, 2009 12:02 pm

    nope. no ones got’em yet πŸ™‚

  15. February 16, 2009 12:02 pm

    jenni – just say it in asian πŸ˜€

  16. February 16, 2009 12:09 pm

    1. i have no idea
    2. i have no idea

    are you SURE the girls won?

  17. February 16, 2009 12:22 pm

    Are we gonna get answers?

  18. February 16, 2009 12:31 pm

    Ok, serious answers:

    1. Knife holder thingy

    2. It looks like a big zit with a kite laying on it, but that’s probably not right. The line going up throws me off….Is that smoke coming from a chimney maybe?? A hospital?

    it helps if you can actually see them being drawn – to know what part was drawn first, etc. but I’m going to guess:
    #1 potholder
    #2 inhale

    or Larry the Cucumber and Curious George

  20. February 16, 2009 12:41 pm

    I think you’re lying about winning. πŸ˜†

    I have NO CLUE what the heck those two pics are. Seriously. I even had Jake look at them. And, I have to echo Jenni here….. everything that popped into my head was not family friendly. πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

  21. February 16, 2009 1:10 pm

    Uh, you say someone actually won this drawing contest? πŸ™‚

    #1 – a baby bottle, or the natural equivalent of one?

    #2 – smoking rocket about to blast off? Ash can with fumes coming off it?

    The second one is better drawn but of what I really have no clue. πŸ™‚

  22. February 16, 2009 1:52 pm

    1. A meat cleaver. Or maybe it’s a banana on a hanger. My first guess was eggplant, but since I guess Vince didn’t get it right, I had to come up with something else.

    I realize Photoqueen already guessed a stethoscope, but I wanted to add… on a hairy chest. Or my second guess is a male person with urination problems. Can I say that?

  23. February 16, 2009 1:53 pm

    1) Baby Bottle
    2) A haunted chair

  24. February 16, 2009 1:57 pm

    brenda – :lol:yes! you cam say that!

  25. February 16, 2009 1:59 pm


    so, pic #1 is simply a….BOTTLE

    pic #2 is surprisingly a….BLOODY NOSE

    go figure!

    brent totally say a mammogram in progress for pic #1

    and i thought pic #2 looked a bit like alfred hitchcock.

  26. February 16, 2009 2:26 pm

    alright! i saw the first and thought bottle! whoa!! i heart pictionary…game nights are so fun.

    Im glad I didn’t comment early this a.m. when I read this, because I guess them both totally wrong and I would have been so red faced.

  28. February 16, 2009 2:51 pm

    I just came back to guess baby bottle for #1. sigh. You already told us.

    “Baby Fish Mouth…?” πŸ˜•

  30. February 16, 2009 4:32 pm

    hahahahahahahahaha !!!! my answers were all inappropiate! thanks for sparing me with the answers

  31. February 16, 2009 4:52 pm

    I’m guessing at some point when drawing #2 someone pointed at their nose to help it along…


  32. February 16, 2009 4:52 pm

    darla – ya, if you look at them too long, they both can get pretty inappropriate looking 😯

  33. February 16, 2009 4:53 pm

    gitz – my mother in law drew pic #2 and she just pointed at everything and grunted. a lot. she was hysterical! too fun!

    :O The last one is a shower thingy. I know it

    Uhm the first one is some kind of parrallel universe in the land of the teletubies. PO rulez

  35. February 16, 2009 6:25 pm

    Well darn.. I didn’t get to guess. And there is no way I would be inappropriate… πŸ˜‰ Last time I was, Tam sent me to my room. πŸ˜€

  36. February 16, 2009 7:41 pm

    I think Tam is not being entirely honest with us – the first one is clearly a heart skipping rope – that or a Dustbuster, while the second one is something that should DEFINITELY be looked at by a Doctor. πŸ™‚

    David – i’m here to tell you there is no way that #2 looks like any of our Jugs (Twisted Universe indeed – Hmmpph!! ease off on the drugs, Dude).


  37. February 16, 2009 8:17 pm

    (without reading comments)

    #1 milk jug
    #2 ENT doctor (if it’s a doc you’d see for sneezing)

  38. February 16, 2009 8:19 pm

    Ok, so I wasn’t TOO far off!!

  39. February 16, 2009 8:43 pm

    annie – you did great!!! im impressed πŸ˜‰

  40. February 16, 2009 11:21 pm

    This is what I get for showing up at 1 AM. I missed the fun. I thought the second one looked like a chemical wash station. πŸ™‚ What fun! We should play again sometime.

    On the book: he does talk about the why. I am only on chapter three, but it is a good book so far. I read some reviews that said he didn’t really help with the fear, but for me reading that it is so normal is a great comfort! I often translate fear as “I’m not a real writer; I’m kidding myself.” These stories of successful writers having those same feelings and writing through them have been helpful. His method must work for me, because I find myself putting the book aside because I have been inspired to write! I will keep you updated as I read more if you like.

  41. February 18, 2009 4:50 pm

    @lovewillbringustogether Ha! I didn’t post mine overly effectively…I meant that #1 could be a jug if my real answer (a mortar and pestle) wasn’t close

    And let’s face it, after the actual answers were revealed, it wasn’t close πŸ™‚

    But I’ll take your advice on the drugs…that could explain a lot 😎

  42. February 18, 2009 6:14 pm

    David – No Worries mate! – I’m a comment reader from way back so i was able to decipher your’s to accurately determine your intention re: #1 being a jug. Over here in Oz our jugs actually have a handle on the side, so again – in this ‘twisted Universe’ (insert one lowered eyebrow and folded arms emoticon here when you find one) – your suggestion was not even close πŸ˜€ I still say it’s a heart skipping rope (do you call it ‘jumping’ rope?) regardless of what Tam said.

    (and no – i’m not also on ‘medication’ – put it down to the Heat – it’s summer here)


  43. February 18, 2009 6:40 pm

    two aussies on my blog.


  44. February 18, 2009 8:22 pm

    Wait! – David’s Australian?? That explains a lot (more) πŸ˜‰


  45. February 18, 2009 8:28 pm


  46. February 19, 2009 4:17 pm

    nasal spray

  47. February 19, 2009 4:17 pm
