When I was a kid, I loved to play board games with my mom. I had many favorites; Memory, Yahtzee, Life, Clue, and Battleship just to name a few. But also among that list was Monopoly. A game that I would beg my mother to play with me, and a game which, if I didn’t know better, I’d swear she’d try to avoid because it always took so long to finish. Like there was no end in sight.

Jedi loves to play Monopoly. We have stacks of other board games, but it’s Monopoly he prefers. We’ve had the same round going now for weeks, at an hour at a time. It’s like there is no end in sight. I know there are quicker versions, but it’s not the same. That’s not true Monopoly. And the truth of the matter is, I enjoy playing with him. Even if he does cheat.
Like I said, some things never change.
