First, I want to apologize to Cathy for missing last week's Monday Morning Musings. I don't know where my head was, and wherever it was, my brain was very absent. :)
Our (adult) children love My Little Pony and found a pony version of Monopoly . We've spent several hours at a time playing this game.
During one of the games over the weekend, our son landed in jail. While David and I were distracted with a transaction, our son "escaped" from jail and we didn't even notice. At some point, he said "Oh, I shouldn't really be out of jail. I just took my turn and went."
Immediately after that, he landed on a property where I had built a castle (like a hotel in regular Monopoly) and ended up having to pay me about $1100 in rent. Our oldest daughter then made the comment: "Honesty doesn't pay you; it pays other people!"
That just struck me as sometimes true, sure, but really very funny. Had he not said anything, we never would have realized that he'd been so sneaky.
