A Brief History of Our Day

We read aloud Kenneth Wilbur's BRIEF HISTORY OF EVERYTHING as we drove the four hours to Brighton to meet my parents who were bringing our children back to us. They chattered delightfully most of the way home, though, admittedly, there was one skirmish about adjusting the rules of the alphabet game: if we looked for objects that INCLUDED (but not displayed) the letter of the alphabet, did the object have to INCLUDE the letter or START with the letter? -- ahh the great questions of being.

Oh, it must definitely START with the letter--a rule I fully endorse. Words on billboards and signs must always START with the letter for it to count--the only exception being license plates (though not vanity plates), which may simply include the letter. I can't see why the rule should change with objects.

If you need further consultation, feel free to contact me on all sorts of game management questions.
