Last night, Matt and I played Monopoly with our BFFs, Amber and Steven. Now, I've played Monopoly with Amber and Steven more than a few times while Matt was gone. The following is always true:
  1. I am the puppy piece.
  2. I somehow land on Community Chest and Chance every single time while the other players amass their fortunes in real estate.
  3. I make jingles for as many properties as I can. "Cry Me a River" for Waterworks, the theme song to Reading Rainbow for Reading Railroad, that kind of thing.
  4. I collect the hot pink properties solely because I like the color.
  5. I lose, bitterly, and my puppy piece ends up sitting in Steven's top hat piece for the rest of the game.
Why I continue playing, I do not know. Perhaps it is just the hope that someday, someday, the fates will allow me to win. Just once.

  7. Argh, I'm really terrible at Monopoly. I do alright with my regular money though so I feel like it evens out.
    I love this skirt, you always look so lovely. You should make them switch over to a game that you are *good* at. ;)
