SoCS — Game Night

I told the guys how much I missed spending game nights with them when I was down and out with infectious mononucleosis. They asked me what it was like being isolated for a few months until I was well enough to be around other people.

I told them how rotten I was feeling and how difficult is was for me to be all alone with no one to talk to. I said it was like my colorful life had suddenly turned monochrome. They were sympathetic, but I soon realized that I was monopolizing the conversation and how monotonous my monologue must have been for them.

They were good guys, though, and were happy that I was doing better and able to spend time with them again. Then one of them opened up the board game and said, “How about some high-stakes Monopoly tonight?”

    I like the globe from the 2000 edition. Otherwise, I like using the thimble or the iron. I think the iron is “retired” while the thimble was, but then returned. I discovered I like collecting some pieces even if the bulk of the game set is obliterated. I don’t know why, maybe the translucent money, our Millennium Edition is nowhere in sight… I believe it got strewn around… when I had three adolescents and two little tikes. Aside from that, it’s weird… because we generally take care of our games and keep them. I have the two golden dice from the Millennium Edition in a different game altogether that had ordinary dice originally.

    I remember game nights fondly and a lot of them around a Monopoly board that used to be my Mom’s from her youth.
