That's how it went down at a game night I went to recently, the token Gentile in a circle of Latter-day Saint young adults. And yes, it worked; Team 1 quickly guessed their teammate's word.
But I am proud to say my Team 2 won two out of three rounds, despite the challenge I had of hurriedly describing my phrase,"coffee shop", to people who have probably never been in one. Oh, the irony of that! Not unlike describing a cut of pork to an Orthodox Jew. But my teammates were good sports and guessed the answer within a few tries. Then: "Coffee shop? What's a coffee shop?" one guy, nineteen days away from beginning his two-year mission, jokingly asked as I passed the game piece to the next player. Kudos to those of us who can laugh good-naturedly at the quirks of our traditions. Indeed, respectful humor is not a bad place to start a conversation between or about vastly different belief systems. At least I'm pretty sure he was kidding.
Next time, maybe we can play a rousing game of Book of Mormon WHO?
Only in Utah Valley.
