The Best [insert noun here] Ever

The Best [insert noun here] Ever

Growing up, one of my favorite activities to do with family and friends was playing the word game Mad Libs®. I loved thinking of crazy and creative words to help write the silly short stories that always ended in laughing and laughing-induced tears and stomachaches.

Yesterday, I was able to relive some of those hilarious childhood memories. In preparation for our work party next week, I was asked to write a homemade “Mad Lib” for our staff to fill out together and make ridiculous stories about each other.

I tested it out with my closest work friends, and as usual, I walked away feeling like I’d gotten a nice ab workout from all the laughter.

Below you will find said “Mad Lib” for you to enjoy with your own friends or coworkers. I hope, at the very least, it brings a smile to your face or maybe even makes you laugh so hard you cry! Enjoy!
