35 Years On, I think that “Postliberal” sums it up
Did you have this one, to choose who would be "it?" (or "out.")
My mother and your mother were hanging up clothes
My mother punched your mother right in the nose
What color was the blood?
G-R-E-E-N and. you. are. out!
Never heard that one. Since a number of the counting games were within earshot of family of one or the other of us, I suspect that one would have been squelched.
Absolutely used this one. May have learned it from my New Bedford cousins (twin girls).
A bit different:My mother and your mother were hanging out the clothesMy mother punched your mother right in the noseWhat color of blood came out?GreenG R E E N and you are not it.
Is it significant that the colour is green, or is that just to get five letters instead of three for the count?
@random observer. It is a dialog. "Green' is the color choice of the the person indicated by the count, which goes forward the number of letters to find out who is chosen. Each round of the chant may have a different color.By sometime in grade school we had figured out how to manipulate the results according to what color we chose
Exactly. I recall figuring out early A: Do I want to be It/Out?B: Can I just go even/odd number of letters for my color, or do I have to go with "Persimmon" to get the outcome I want?C: Does the fun of making the counter work his way through "Burnt Umber" outweigh whatever my eventual result is?
