Deja Vu, Sort Of

So, the four of us are sitting at the card table playing Settlers of Catan, when the pizza arrives, and we whip out plastic plates and paper towels, and I quip, "Why do I feel like we're in college?" Only I was never part of the gaming crowd in college. I did eat lots of pizza, though.

It's touching to me how you can keep being part of people's lives long after you are gone. The board game we played was inherited from a friend who's been dead just over two years. We just played the game at someone else's house, so we opened up his copy that's been in our garage. I bet he would have loved playing with us. Maybe we will play together someday.

Great game. Not too complex, plenty fun. The kids and I enjoy that one.

A very nice way to remember your friend.

Do you like that game? We have heard a lot about it, but it's expensive and we don't know if we want to spend the money.

Miss Sniz, I do like the game. One of the things I like about it is that you can be involved in trades even when it is not your turn, and receive cards even when it is not your turn, so it's not just sitting around waiting for your turn. When playing with children, that can get boring.
