Deciding Who’s It

You’re ten years old and you’re about to play a game of Tag or Kick the Can and it’s time to decide who is going to be it. It always sucks being It, but somebody has to be It. Deciding who’s It is always tricky, so you have to be fair about it. I always resorted to Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe or Fart in the Barnyard to determine the outcome. Everyone puts a fist in a circle (maybe two fists to mix it up) and somebody says “Fart in the barnyard/ Pey-yew/ Who did it come from?/ From you.” On each syllable the speaker taps a fist and rotates around the circle. Whoever is the last fist touched is either It or is eliminated from being It. It’s more fun to have an elimination process to determine who’s It. Anticipation makes everything better. Once you decide who’s It, you can finally play the game.
