Subject: RE: Mimsies, clapsies? Origin?
My mum (Scottish) taught me more or less the same thing but with two balls. That was about 25 years ago mind you - I don't think I could do it now but I have a sudden urge to try. I also distinctly remember my dad, who is from Belfast, telling me that it was the same game as the weegirls in his street played.
