Here’s a Game for Tonight’s Debate!

(Apparently the vice presidential candidates didn’t on the day of their debate.)

Watching the debate? Put the beer back in the fridge! Play this game instead:

Every time either Obama or Romney says ______________, do (yoga pose) for 5 breaths.

  • Economy / Tax: navasana (boat pose)
  • War: virabhadrasana I (warrior 1)
  • Foreign Policy: virabhadrasana II (warrior 2)
  • Budget / Debt: vrksasana (tree pose)
  • United States of America (or just “United States” or “America”): garudasana (eagle pose)
  • Islam / Muslim: ardha chandrasana (half-moon pose)
  • Israel: trikonasana (triangle pose)
  • Terrorism: virabhadrasana III (warrior 3)
  • Immigration: salabhasana (locust pose)

Try this and have fun instead of getting angry at the candidates! Tomorrow, while folks around you nurse their hangover, you’ll feel calm and limber!

PS: Attention D.C. folks! Early voting opens today. Avoid long queues on November 6 by heading to the polls ahead of time! Look up your ward’s early voting site, or go to the downtown one at Judiciary Square.
