Monopoly. All day long marathon game. We'd play; we'd break; we'd play. Nicholas would lead, but then he'd realize that Elaine had bought everything. Alida started as banker and then when Ben got bored she took over for him. Elaine's tactic--buy everything. Nicholas's tactic, buy Park Place properties only. When I tried, as poor mommy, to get Elaine to sell me a yellow property at some point in the game, she looked at me and said, "NEVER!" Then, at some point a crawfish boil started across the street, so she unloaded everything and took off out the door.
It came down to Nicholas vs. Mom.
And do you know that boy took me out with Park Place in the end...
Well played, Nicholas. Well played.
