This weekend we did family game night at the in-laws house with Mr.Slick's parents, sister in-law, brother in-law and the nieces. Well the four girls (over the age of 6 months) decided to play Life.
We were going 'round and niece was whooping us horribly. She literally landed on every.single.lawsuit square there was. And for those not familiar: that's $100,000 each time :( So we were playing, all of us desperately trying to keep up with the kiddo and everyone's vehicles were filling up with kids in the backseat. Mother in-law had two, niece had 2, sister in-law had a full vehicle.
Guess who had none.
Did ya guess?
Do you need another minute to think about it? No, okay...it was me.
Sister in-law even kept landing on the baby tiles even after she had a full car. And I never did. She kept offering me hers. Guess that doesn't change even in board game land.
Then after I passed the last opportunity for a baby I lost almost all my money in a lawsuit and medical bills.
Even in the realm of games the fertile are still overly fertile and the infertile are still infertile. I didn't know if I should laugh or cry, so I decided to laugh which made everyone there (well the adults who know about our IF struggles) really uncomfortable. I'm just glad I decided to make myself laugh to avoid crying because if it was that awkward with me laughing at that situation I can't imagine how awkward things would have gotten if I had cried.
This used to be one of my favorite games but it's now been logged away in my brain under the "Unfair to infertiles" category.
