Spit Take - The Game

Christine was out last thursday night. Unencumbered by a responsible adult, the kids came up with a game called Spit Take. 
A spit-take is a comic technique in which someone spits a beverage out of his or her mouth when he or she reacts to a statement. - Wikipedia
Their version of the game was pretty simple.
  1. Person A takes a big swig of water. 
  2. Person B then says something gross such as "I peed in that glass."
  3. Person A spits the water out in making as much noise and spray as possible.
  4. Person C (That was me) is instructed to take pictures.

These are some of our pictures.
