Punch Bug!

Remember when we were kids and we would be in the car or walking down the street with a friend and for no apparent reason he/she punches you in the arm and says "Green Punch Buggy”? You were playing the Punch Buggy game.….

The rules are simple; whenever you see a Volkswagen Beetle, as quickly as you can, turn to the person nearest you, punch their upper arm and say the color of the car, followed by "Punch Buggy". Remember to say "no punch-backs". If you don't, someone else can punch on the same car, a situation to avoid. This game has been around for as long as I can remember and it is still around today played at all ages as was evident to me when I was sitting in the Tim Horton’s drive-thru a few weeks ago and a group of kids from the high school across the street started punching each other and screaming “Green Punch Buggy” when they saw my car. The rules vary from region to region and sometimes the words “Punch Bug” are used and you accumulate points, a VW Bug convertible or van gets you double the points…. Whatever rules your family uses they will most definitely be passed down from generation to generation.

For the challenge this week at Let’s Scrap I decided to do a layout about my very own “Punch Bug”.
Til next time… Enjoy!
