What celebrity guests would you invite to a dinner party?
For the sake of this post, pretend you like celebrities. For the sake of this post, they must also be living celebrities.
Here are my choices:
John and Joan Cusack (in my reality, they come as a package deal)
It may get awkward now that they are in your home. You may need to “break the ice,” as they say.
John and Joan wondered where did the expression “break the ice” come from.
I did a little research and discovered that it comes from navigating waters. This blog provides an excellent in-depth explanation.
Bonnie was perplexed as to which ice breaker game we should play.
I suggested to them that we play Chow Wow Meow, which was introduced to me by my friend LA.
Judy inquired as to the meaning of Chow Chow Meow.
Judy, I’m happy to help, but could you please get me a book deal? KIDDING.
No I’m not.
To get the specifics, go to LA’s post, since she is far better at explaining it than me.
Here’s the gist of it:
Chow– Something good you ate
Wow-Something that amazed you
Meow– Something cute
My chow is an iced sugar cookie almond milk latte from Starbucks. Please no Starbucks vitriol in the comments, we all have our likes and dislikes. When I go there, I normally grab the same thing (iced chai), but I recently decided to try something new. This is much lighter than their typical holiday drinks. It also has sprinkles on top, making it feel extra special.
My wow will be the one I chose for LA’s post: bioluminescence, because it continues to amaze me. You’re not alone if you’ve never heard of it. It was only in October that I learned about it for the first time. You may learn more about it here, but first watch this video:
Isn’t nature amazing?
Here is an in-depth explanation of what bioluminescence is from National Geographic:
And my meow is Biscuit’s recent fondness of our fireplace. Biscuits had never seen a fireplace before, and he’s completely smitten. Buddy’s bed has always been placed in front of the fireplace (it’s gas, no worries) throughout the winter months, because he enjoys lying there. So Biscuits and Buddy are now cuddling in front of it TOGETHER, and it is the definition of cozy.
Who’s on your celebrity guest list?
What is your Chow Wow Meow?
Do you have any good ice breaker games to share?
