This is a question Family codes and rituals

Freddy Woo writes, "as a child we used to have a 'whoever cuts doesn't choose the slice' rule with cake. It worked brilliantly, but it's left me completely anal about dividing up food - my wife just takes the piss as I ritually compare all the slice sizes."

What codes and rituals does your family have?

Scouser's pet reminded me...
When I was about 17 and had just started 'going out' in town, the bus I used to catch would drive through the red light district of Bristol (before they clamped down and the ladies of the night moved on).

On the journey, me and my brother would regularly play 'Spot the Hooker' - You shout when you see one, first one to shout gets that point, most points wins free pint etc.

However, having played this for several months we grew bored and had to introduce new ideas to keep the game fresh. We started to give the ladies 'Names'. These could then be used in conjunction with a shout to gain a bonus point.

Cue the hideously embarrassing experience of walking through town with my Mum on Saturday morning and loudly exclaiming "Look there's Debbie the Hooker!"

Mum was not pleased I knew a hooker's name and took a lot of persuading to believe in the game. She has since however, been known to play along on occasion!
