Over the long weekend, I found myself playing a game of Celebrity — which, if you’ve never played, I highly recommend. Now, the third round of Celebrity requires charades. Which is how I found myself attempting to pantomime “Grace Jones.” How can one truly do justice to this without words, I ask you?

Yes, I could pretend to be clanging cymbals together, but that would not encompass the glory of the hat. Likewise, there is no universal charades gesture for AWESOME:
Nor for OMG WTF YES:
I mean…HOW CAN JUSTICE BE DONE TO THIS MAJESTY WITHOUT WORDS, I ASK YOU? Or even with them, honestly. Which is why I ended up trying to mime “Grace” by awkwardly pirouetting about and then promptly came up blank for “Jones.” Of course no one got it. Grace Jones would be ASHAMED OF ME. And surely is. I am ashamed of myself.
