Happy Jar: Enjoying A Game Night With Friends

Sometimes life gets overly complicated.  And sometimes it is amazingly simple.

We had a pair of very good friends over last night.  We enjoyed a good dinner and after the kids were in bed, we pulled out a party game: Namesake.  You have to think of people in different categories with a particular first name  (Eg Mary + History = Mary Queen of Scots or Typhoid Mary).

We were all laughing and having a good time (which is the hallmark of a great party game).  Only a few examples of blatant cheating via Internet (mostly by Dave and I). 

Then we came to the kicker.  I pulled up a card and it said to "name 3 people with your boss's name."  I turn to Dave and ask which of his bosses he wants to go with (Chris and Greg, both fine, common names).

Dave gets technical on me and points out that I read the card and thus it should be my boss's name.

Except my boss's name is Yolanda.

Can anyone think of any actor or musician with the first name Yolanda?  Can you think of anyone in history, science, athletics, fictional character ... anyone?

Neither could we.

(And if you went to the Internet and looked ... that's still cheating.)

We all had a great laugh over that one.  One of the best nights we've had in a long time.
