I think I've waited decades for this!
Sunday evening we ended up playing Monopoly. Just regular old Monopoly. Not Star Wars Monopoly. Not Kansas Monopoly. Not Garfield Monopoly. Not Monopoly on the computer where you don't even have to think. Just Monopoly. You know....... the regular old board game with pieces you move around to try to buy various properties, dice to roll, little plastic green houses and red hotels. Anyway, I was iron/horse until the iron wouldn't stay attached to the horse easily, so then I was just horse.
I think B. had the race car, M. the ship , and T. the dog. Anyway, we're starting out, and maybe the second time around or so, I landed on...... Park Place! Then, a few more times around, and I landed on...... you got it!....... BROADWAY!!!!! Both blue properties--mine!
So anyway, long story summed up now..... houses, then hotels, some deals made, and I won! That's right, big brothers who ALWAYS won....... I won! (P.S. Maybe I learned something all those years being on the little sister end of the wheeling and dealing.)
