But your story IS cute!  (Or maybe I’m a big nerd but I loved the presidential debate date!)  And I mean, it’s not like you can make stuff up (“Oh, we enjoy windsurfing and skiing”).  My advice would be to answer honestly, and if she doesn’t like the responses I guess she can just come up with a different kind of game…

aww, your first date sounds super cute! and how you met! it’s easier said than done, but don’t worry about if your relationship doesn’t fit into the the kind of “romantic” conventional (i’d say cliche?) your fmil wants–it’s your relationship, and what rings true for you and your fi is what matters 🙂

not totally the same thing, but for a really long time, my fi and i were embarassed about how we met. we met on a blind-date through a dating website. we would tell people a different story, that we met at a bar. a couple years into the relationship (we’ve been together 3 1/2 years now), we realized it was ridiculous–how we actually met was a much better story, and it was more “us” than the silly story (ie, we are both way too shy to actually hit on someone at a bar, and i would have been too oblivious to notice that a guy actually liked me unless he was a skeevy guy coming on too strong, haha). so, that was a long way of saying, your stories are way, way better than any other because they’re what makes your relationship yours! don’t think about what she wants you to say, think about what makes you you! and, that’s really sweet that she’s throwing you a party and wants to make the game!

i think your story is soo cute… like the hammer is like you came to the day to rescue the soles of his shoes with a hammer!  and the two of you chillax all the time to chicken nuggets and curly fries… you loved the relaxing atmosphere of your engagement picture because it spoke to you as a couple, you are definitely the no-froo froo type

I think your story sounds cute too.  What about things you like to talk about or restaurants you like to go or food you like or goals for the future.

or maybe seasons….or pumpkins or yellow or ….. i don’t know. 

Are you friends with a good storyteller?  Have them help you, my sister can make the most ‘mundane’ thing sound exciting, it’s all about the spin.
