SEVEN TAPPERS

WHEN I WAS IN GRADE SCHOOL, ST. LUCY'S, ON RAINY DAYS WHEN WE
COULDN'T GO OUT ON THE PLAYGROUND AT NOON, WE WOULD PLAY
THIS GAME. SISTER WOULD PICK SEVEN PEOPLE, THE TAPPERS, AND
THE REST OF US WOULD PUT OUR HEADS DOWN ON THE DESK. THE
TAPPERS WOULD GO AROUND QUIETLY AND TAP SEVEN PEOPLE ON THE
HEAD. THESE SEVEN PEOPLE WOULD THEN TRY TO GUESS WHICH ONE
HAD TAPPED THEM. IF THEY GUESSED RIGHT, THEY BECAME A TAPPER.
IF THEY GUESSED WRONG, THE TAPPER REMAINED ONE. THE OBJECT WAS
TO STAY A TAPPER AS LONG AS YOU COULD.
