The Game of Life (game) (obviously)

The Game of Life is a popular board game made by Milton Bradley. I think that it’s more fun and entertaining than Monopoly. Monopoly can ruin friendships and I’ve never experienced a major blowup while playing Life. The game play is simple. You start at the beginning, you spin a wheel to determine how many spaces you can move, and you get to decide your fate. The game gives you options. Do you want to go to college or just jump out into the work force? Do you want to get married or stay single? Do you want kids? Do you want to be a rock star or a scientist? You can buy insurance, you can buy stocks, they even have promissory notes. Doesn’t that sound like a fun way to spend a rainy Saturday? The best part about The Game of Life is spinning the wheel at the start of your turn. It always reminded me of the Big Wheel on The Price is Right. It clicks and it clacks and it spins around. It’s way more fun than rolling dice.

Saturdays

Saturdays are the best day of the week. Saturdays are freedom. They are the summer vacation of your week. There is nothing more liberating than a whole day with no responsibilities. It’s the optimum day of the week to have parties, barbeques, going out on the town or just going crazy. It sucks if you have to work on Saturdays, and I’m in the food service industry so I usually have to. The worst thing in the world is a rainy Saturday. It’s been proven.
