We spent most of our day with Mandy and Paul, having lunch, farting around town, and watching season one of Gossip Girl (my latest addiction). Oh, and trying for two hours to get Charlie to take a nap. Holy hell.
We went out separate ways for a few hours so we could all relax and get some sleep. And yes, I got a nap, and yes, it was awesome.
Mandy and Paul came back around 8:00 tonight after Charlie was down for the night and we cracked open a bottle of this (my new favorite beverage) and laid out the Monopoly board. Since we were in a bit of a time crunch*, we each started out with four properties and decided to limit the game to twenty rounds.
These were the properties I started with:
Everything started out neat and tidy and happy.
And then it slowly morphed into this.
I was doing pretty good - hell, I started the game off with a clear advantage (Park Place and Boardwalk), but I got demolished after landing on one of Mandy's properties that had a hotel on it.
I came in last place. But seriously, there was no shortage of laughs. I'm pretty freaking witty when I've had some alcohol.
A good day and night all around. That ended at 9:30.
Have I mentioned we're old?
