Lady Bracknell went to hospital...
Her continued malaise, however, renders her unequal to the task of composing lengthy blog entries containing such necessary elements as logical flow and coherent argument. Hence the recent introduction to this blog of the parlour games which, to date, have proved to be most diverting.
Given the generally dubious state of health not only of Lady Bracknell herself, but also of the majority of her regular readers, this latest game should have considerable appeal and result in spirited play.
This game is similar to the popular "I went to market", in that a list must be constructed in alphabetical order, with players accurately repeating the previous "goes" before adding an item of their own.
An example would be, "I went to hospital because I had acne", followed by, "I went to hospital because I had acne and a boil".
Naturally, given the background of many of her readers, Lady Bracknell is hoping for more obscure conditions than the simple acne and/or boils.
As a side benefit to this game, it may be that readers who previously considered themselves to be very poorly indeed may decide by the end of play that they are really remarkably sprightly in comparison with the Person Who Went To Hospital.
The first "go" is:
I went to hospital because I had ankylosing spondylitis.
