Kiss Chase
Knicker Chase
Do you want to play Chase?

Too much teasing potential IMO. Fine if you're actually American because it's fairly normal there.

God no. Stop watching Gossip Girl

Kiss Chase
Or a merchant bank.

I agree, if you ARE ~American then you can get away with it, but ........otherwise, no you can't.

Yes, the first thing I thought was it sounded like someone from The Bold and The Beautiful. Sorry!

If you are Australian or American it's ok. They do tend to use "unusual" names. I think it's awful.

It started off being a nickname for Charles here (from Chas/Chaz) and now I know quite a few who are just called that.

We don't call it playing chase here; it's tag. smile

Websticks - I do hope he lives in America or Australia.

If you are going to do it, put Charles on the birth certificate. I like it as a nn.

Knicker chase (played at mixed SE London state primary circa 1985 - but not at all girls private school in Kent circa 1988) was where the boys chased the girls and when they caught a girl she had to show the boy her knickers.

Sounds awful as I write it but it was just another one of those playground games at the time blush
