Game Night Monopoly
The Miller family was all gathering around the kitchen table. Dad was bringing the box of games from out of the front closet.
“What game do we want to play tonight?” he asked.
Little Billy burst out, “Monopoly!”
Sally, his older sister by exactly three years and two months, rolled her eye and crossed her arms. “Nu-uh! Let’s play Clue!”
Little Billy shouted back through clenched teeth, “No! We’re playing Monopoly because that’s my favorite game of all time.”
“You can’t even count yet. You always have to have someone help you,” Sally retorted.
“I was thinking of Yahtzee,” their mom began to say.
“No!” the siblings shouted in unison.
Dad sighed. “Here we go again.”
“Well, tell him we should play Clue!”
“Tell her we are gonna play Monopoly!”
“There’s always Battleship,” Mom suggested.
“No!” the siblings shouted together then went back to arguing with each other.
Dad propped his elbow on the table and rested his chin in his hand. "We should have just had a movie night instead," he mumbled to Mom. She nodded her agreement.
