My family plays Monopoly while I watch. I don’t play anymore. It reminds me too much of life. I’d be the boot; I’d walk in a circle for hours. I’d collect $200 every time I passed Go, but I’d just as quickly land on someone’s property and owe money--debt! Or I’d take a chance and end up in jail. Or I’d pay electricity, hospital and beauty bills, or rent and mortgage. Where is the fun in that?
