She's a Method Actor

I am stumped by my sister's brilliant Charades choice!

She is walking endlessly in a circle, pausing only now and again to say, emphatically, "Come on, you guys!" She is five, and the rest of us are obviously so bad at this game.

My family shouts guesses.

"Playing Ring-Around-The-Rosie!"

"Hiking!"

"Duck-Duck-Goose!"

"Escaped mental patient!"

Finally, she pauses in frustration, hands on her hips.

"No!" she insists. "I'm going to a meeting!"
