Tell us about a time that a competition went too far.
I wrote a story in response, although I never submitted it. I will tell it to you now.
When it comes to absurdity and competition, nothing beats a game of Ultimate Sorry! My husband (then boyfriend) and I "invented" it in college. The key difference between this game and the classic board game is that a draw of Sorry! or landing on the other person's piece sent the offending piece not back to Home, but to anywhere accessible to the opponent from his or her seat. We quickly learned that when playing outside, choosing the green pawns meant considerable time spent in the grass, and was to be avoided. Pieces were, at various times, dug out of flowerpots and tempted away from the neighbor's dog.
At least he didn't swallow it.
