Participation Required, Please

Last night at church my friend Trey McQuaig told me about a little game that I though sounded like a fun way to pass some time at work.

So this morning, I started off with his first challenge: by clicking the links on a Wikipedia article, try to get from “Shakespeare” to “Mac” (Macintosh/Apple). I thought it sounded a little tricky, but I underestimated my powers. I was able to get there in only 5 quick clicks. And I was pretty proud of myself actually! (For those of you who aren’t aware of this, I’m kind of a Google Master – so that helps in this game.)

I texted him immediately for a harder challenge, and he responded with “Spaghetti” to “Holocaust.” And wanna guess how that went? Awesomely. On click number 3, I was at “concentration camps,” and by click number 4, I was at “Holocaust.” Boom. Roasted.  The next one was trickier, and required much more time, reading, and thought – “Gatorade” to “Star Wars.” But I still got it in only 4 clicks.

I like this game, and want to take it to the next level, if you will. So friends – I want to accept challenges from all of you. Please think long and hard, and then TEXT ME two words to connect through this Wikipedia game. I’ll even buy a treat for the person whose challenge requires the most clicks. (And yes, I will actually mail it to you if you live in say – NJ, Tennessee, St. Augustine or Pensacola!)
Ready, set, text-me-some-random-words-to-connect-for-my-game-GO!

Oh, and love yall.
