The Jelly Belly Game

We invented a little game last night. You'll need a bag of Jelly Belly jelly beans in assorted flavors (the only reason you would have this is if someone put a bag in your stocking). Dump them in a bowl. One player reaches into the bowl and chooses a bean without looking. He or she then shows it to the other participating players, who compare its coloring to the key on the back of the Jelly Belly bag. The first player then eats the bean and tries to guess its flavor. Without the suggestive power of the coloring, this is often surprisingly hard to do.

Also, we watched a funny little movie called Happy Accidents. It's a romantic comedy with a time travel element!
