The Courteous Game

Here’s a great game you can play with your spouse! It’s called, “Let’s see who can be the most courteous.”

It’s an easy game to learn, and you only need two players. All it takes to play is a little love and a lot of imagination.

The object is to see who can outdo the other player with kindness. At every opportunity, do something that your opponent would never expect, like leaving little love notes around the house, or in their pockets.

When your wife isn’t looking, sneak her car out of the garage and bring it home completely washed and filled up with petrol. That’s a great way to score extra points.

But the way, to really win is by racking up those little points throughout the day. Compliment your mate every chance you get, and look for ways to make them feel special. Trust me, it’s a great game. And the longer you play, the better you get at it. The best part is everyone wins!
