Those of you who are Family orientated may be aware that a Monopoly game becomes a battle when dad is playing. My research reveals fathers are more likely to go all out to win when they play board games with their children- or grand children.
Mum's in the main are quite happy to see their children enjoy the thrill of victory if it makes life more easier, it seems most dads enjoy a 'school of hard knocks' approach either because they themselves can't stand losing, or to teach their child how it feels to taste defeat. However, this usually creates a problem for most kids who in most cases throw a wobbly if they don't win.
Wives too become annoyed when they mostly lose when playing card games, to keep the peace it is best to create a winning opportunity from time to time for madame although it tends to go against the grain of my superior male ego.
Read this the other day. Recently a Dead man has been elected to the Texas State Senate, a few weeks after he died.
Mario Gallegos posthumously beat a Republican candidate after his family and friends continued to work on his behalf until the last vote was counted.
This sort of stupidity could only happen in The United States of Uncle Sam land, or could some of those back benchers in our parliament be deceased and mummified to make up the numbers. wouldn't surprise me.
Remember He who does not hope to win has already lost, and to be trod on you have to be lying down.....back soon ..Vest.
