Adventures with Edward: Edward plays charades

Setting: Desk of the human


Edward, bored out of his plastic mind, crawls out of my handbag.  He tells me he wants to play a game.  I suggest charades with movie titles.  Edward rubs his hands in excitement and quickly adjusts his scarf.  He begins the first clue.

“Um”, I say.  “Umm…Wait!  Is it Saving Private Ryan?”

Edward says yes.  He is surprised I got it so quickly.  He thinks of another clue.

“Wow, a toughie.”  I scratch my head. “Ooh!  Is it So I Married An Axe Murderer?”

Edward nods yes.  He is impressed with my skillz.

He stops a moment, thinking of a really hard one.

“Hmmm…I’m going to guess Three Weddings and a Funeral.”

Edward huffs in impatience.  He turns over and poses again.

“Ooh ooh!  Um, is it Finding Nemo?”

“Dang!”  Edward says.  He grabs a prop for the next one.

“Duh,” I say.  “Ghost.”  I roll my eyes.

Edward removes his prop.  He thinks hard.  He takes his scarf off and poses again.

“Wow.  This one is hard.  Is it The Fifth Element?”

Edward shakes his head no.

“Hmm, then how about Interview with a Vampire?”

Edward says no again.

“Geez.  Ok how about Wolverine?”

Edward just chuckles.  I take that as a no.

“Dang.  I give up.  What’s the answer?”

Twilight,” says Edward.  He winds his scarf around his neck and struts back to my bag.

  9. That Edward, maybe since he should try out for the big screen. You know, being so good at charades and all.


  10. I wish you would have used a CLEAN kleenex for his ghost costume. ha
    These always make me giggle.
    They are hilarious.
    You need to animate them and put them on YOU TUBE.
    You would be famous.

    My sister-in-law has been forwarding these to me, What a riot. I in turn pass them along to my 60ish friends. We all want to know where we might get an Edward doll in time for New Moon party we will be holding in Michigan’s upper peninsula at the Ambasader restaurant-home of the giant fishbowl drinks-Edward is so invited

      I think you can get an Edward doll at Toys R Us. My good friend, Winn, provided me with mine. I’ll bet they’ll have an Jacob doll too!
