Words, Words, & More Words & Definitions Game!

Related Topics: Fun

This is my own idea so let's have fun...."Let the Games Begin!"

Rules: I will start with a word & I will give the first comment
so you can see how it is done. I give the definition to the
word give and give a new word for the next person. One
turn at a time, please. & wait until someone else gives a
new word.

Any word can be used, just play nice & remember we have
teenagers that play. Please..no politics here! I blog on the
political questions & blogs but come to the games for fun.

If you care to chit-chat with players & post pictures, feel
free to do so. I am a very outgoing person & like to
interact with other players ....I know some of you do too.

I will not block anyone unless it is absolutely necessary!
If I have a problem with anything, I'll send you a private
email on SH.

We will start with easy words, then as the game goes along,
we will have harder words....I am sure. So if you need a
dictionary...that is alright.

First Word: Happy

You!

    Hi Joe61,

    Glad to hear from you. I am not quite sure if you refer to the song, resp. album Crack the Skye or to one of the many, many meanings of the verb to "crack", including slang - right now, I see a firework of great fun or perhaps a thunderstorm with flashes of lightning - which are "cracking my skies", resp. making them explode. Thank you for your information.

    Well, how about a little firework of laughs to begin with?

    No drug reference intended....Crack the skies means Day Break....We are at least 6 hours ahead of your time zone, depending on which part of America you live in.....Like it is 10:56 am here...so in America it will only be about 6:56 am.....In Texas it will only be about 4:56am and the further South you travel the earlier it will be!

    Oh thank you, good to know; that sounds somehow like classic slang, but without the rhyming ... Where is this expression from? I'll need some good links with reliable information, because there are many different slang types. But you are Scottish (congrats for Andy Murray - he finally did it), and you have your own expressions, and I think that you are also interested in the ancient cultures and languages of Scotland.

    Actually, it is past noon here - lol. I am not on trip and live in Western Europe ... The USA have usually more sun than us here.
