Risk Vs. Reward

leave a comment »

So this story reminded me of a tale from my youth.

A game of Monopoly has landed a Michigan man in jail. WDIV-TV reported a 54-year-old man was playing the board game Saturday night with a female friend when he tried to buy Park Place and Boardwalk from her.

When she refused, Fraser police Lt. Dan Kolke told WWJ-AM he hit her in the head, breaking her glasses.

The man was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault and battery.

Back in the day my mom, dad, one half-brother and another person or two were in this intense game of Risk. If the legends are true, this game went deep into the night. When the smoke cleared my half-brother and dad were head-to-head. After a few hours or so my old man emerged victorious.

It was then that the following words were exchanged. Even though I was a kid at the time and didn’t witness the actual exchange, I’ve heard this story often enough to know what’s what.

Bro: You did WHAT?!
Dad: I went and grabbed some extra pieces from that one container.
Bro: You took more pieces?!
Dad: Yeah. So what?
Bro: That’s cheating! We played all night and you CHEATED?!
Dad: What’s the big deal?
Bro: We were up until THREE IN THE MORNING and YOU CHEATED!!!

Ah, family. Any wonder why I stay away?
