the lap circle game goes down like this. someone says "honey I love you, why can't you smile" and you had to ask that and get the other person to respond along the lines of "honey I love you but I just cant smile" while the person who asked is trying to do anything and everything in their power to make the other person smile or laugh.

You two always say people stop listening because you banter instead of telling the story, but I truly love your banter. You two are so funny! You do eventually get to the story and then I find myself laughing while listening to dark stories, which is such an odd feeling. Never stop! 🤣

I USED TO WATCH THE MOLE ON VHS! He's the reason I like the environment so much! There's a video where a city is built over their forest home and it made me cry. The Mole and the Green Star was the other vhs of him I had 😭💕💕
