Things hadn’t been going so well for me lately and she was about all I had left. Still, I was feeling hopeful as I cruised along the most expensive streets in town, past rows of bright, green houses.
I thought I’d be able to turn a corner soon and things would be good again, for a while.
But it wasn’t to be. As I stopped in front of that big, red hotel at the end of the road I knew I was flat broke. I’d lost another game of Monopoly.
