Elijah asked what was for lunch (he was confused about which meal we were eating).
Amira answered, monkey stew. Dominic said kangaroo. Alexander said Winnie the Pooh.
The repetition of this trio and the laughter echoed for some time. They tried it again. Alexander asked the question that time. I decided to help them with the rules, because there was some dispute as to proper order.
If you, too, wish to play Monkey Stew, this is what you should do:
One person asks the question: What's for lunch? and calls on the person who should answer first. That first person answers with some silly meal idea, and the other people must come up with another that rhymes.
Rich, of course, decided to confound the children with oranges.
