AKA “God save the Queen”…

is a game that is played during formals (fancy dinners at colleges for which everyone dresses up). There are all sorts of rules that were said to me tonight, but basically, if someone throws a penny into your glass of wine, you need to down it.

Needless to say, I went to a Queens’ College formal and got pennied quite a few times tonight.
