Quaker Meeting
Posted July 1, 2014 at 02:57 am

There were a lot of things about my childhood that I thought were normal, as you'll read later this week.

Quaker Meeting was one of them, until I recited it to my Girl Scout troop a few years ago and was met by blank stares rather than familiarity.

After a quick online search, it appears my brother and I weren't alone in enjoying this childhood game (which is a downright effective way of getting kids to stop what they're doing, by the way), but it seems I was there isn't much recorded history to it, which I find interesting.

Wait until I tell you about the Lady in the Lobster someday. NOBODY knows about the Lady in the Lobster.

PS. Quakers are actually a surprisingly accepting and peaceful bunch. Look 'em up!
