I am not the board-game-playing kind of girl. I like playing with lego and I like word games or card games or yahtzee. But every once in a while when we go camping and the kids catch me by surprise while I relax in my recliner I accidentally say “yes” to the Game of Life. The Simpsons Game of Life that is, which we borrowed from our friends (sorry Jeanette - do you want it back?)
So last summer when we were out camping at one of our favourite spots at the N’Kwala Rec Site…
… the kids suckered me into playing the Game of Life.
It actually turned out pretty good for me.
I decided to not get an education and take a job-card right away. I became an actress and got married. However, my husband seemed to be doing his own thing, because I breezed through the whole game without having any kids while my son had three and my daughter had two (he he).
I lived in a $ 40.000 shack, got by just fine without any major debt and just before I got ready to retire at the Monty Burns Retirement Home I switched careers and became mayor of Springfield.
Sigh. Sometimes it should just be that easy.
