Money Comes and Money Goes

You all know about the infamous McDonald’s Monopoly game going on, right?! If not, you are either not in America or are living under a rock somewhere in the caves of the dessert.

Here is my little story to share with you about how money comes and money goes. While in the Sin City for a conference the boy toy and I decided to grab a bite to eat at yes, you got it, McDonald’s for breakfast. Having never really been one to play those games I thought why not so I opened our games pieces and there it was – BOARDWALK one of the most expensive pieces of real estate on the board. The conversation went something like this:

Me: Save those pieces, do you know how hard it is to get Boardwalk? I mean we could win some major bucks here.

Boy Toy: Okay, but you know you will never win? Your chances of getting hit with lightening are better.

Me: I do not care, I will take my chances. Besides are we not in Vegas, the land of forever gambling?

…I am now going to fast forward you back to my hometown…

Me: Um, Ter where are the pieces that I asked you to keep for the monopoly game when we were in Vegas?

Boy Toy: I think I still have them in the fanny pack.

Me: Can you get them? You are never going to believe what piece was on my Sweet Tea today. PARK PLACE the second most expensive piece of real estate that is going to make you and I very happy when I put the codes in for the online game.

After much digging for the piece of gold a very sad and worried boy toy comes down from the attic and says:

I must have thrown the pieces out from Vegas while I was packing to come home.


Easy come and easy go and damn it I will never have the opportunity of having those two pieces together ever again! Again, this is why I do not gamble or play money winning games because I always lose.

Living in the UK I've never heard about this game but, like you, I always lose on the rare occasions that I dabble in gambling. Although you admit you trusted a man not to lose your gold token... hmmm... you sound like a bit of a gambler to me!
