pay a game? Peas? D.Q.!

ever played this?:
if not, it's ok. You'll pick up quick.
basic game play is this:
one person reads a phrase that is written on a card
"Plea sway tube ease heated"
and everyone tries to hear/ guess what is being said,
which is:

"Please wait to be seated"

We find ourselves playing a similar version of this game almost daily trying to understand Ivy.
She loves this game- in fact- she practically invented it.
I'm probably the best at it, although Asher is a pretty close second.
John? he's getting better:

  16. remember this post? a request to wear an article of clothing with her picture. 

(my apologies for #16 but I just HAD to include it since she had us stumped for a good 5-10 minutes as she repeated it a good 20-30 times before we heard what she was saying- and got our laughter under control.) 

How did you do?  Want to play again? via video? or even better, in person?  Me too!
if you didn't already figure it out, highlight text following each phrase to reveal correct answers.
Thanks for playing!
