Cold Hearted Exec in the Making

When we come to Morrigan’s home, we play games… games we don’t own at home such as LIFE and Clue. She keeps them here for us and we break them out and play every night.

It can get pretty intense with the boys when playing LIFE, competing for jobs, not wanting children, trying to get the best home, investing when they can. I wish I had a tape recorder so I could put the dialogue out there.

Today they were cashing out and Morrigan beat out my 2nd son by 20K to win the game. From my dear sweet saintly second son I heard, “Can’t I cash in my wife and kids? I have the most kids in this game! If they’ll give me 100K for each kid and 200K for my wife, I’ll win!”


Nothing like family values.

Oh my... I can't wait until my kids get old enough for us to get together and have a huge game of Life!

Did he ever pay the computer geek the money for breaking the spinner? :-)

He's growin' up quick... as they all do.

But... he's practical... I'll give him that.

Sissy- Oh yes. He woke up and quit crying over the 50K. Then he ended up being some doctor making so little money we said he was volunteering in Africa. And he just sat there playing quietly until he snuck up on everyone and nearly beat Mo. And Mo became a cop and totally raked it in beating everyone. I think she collected her cash in speeding tickets...

Meanwhile Bones spent most of the game bitching he got two little girls, making it three girls in his family to his one boy and I said, "hey, hey, hey, how do you think *I* feel with four boys and just me?!" and he... completely did not get it. It was lost on him.
