Christmas with the Sales: On Risk and World Domination


For Christmas, Diesel got Drew the game Risk. I had never played it before, because growing up, the game always seemed too complicated to me. But it’s not. In fact, it now tops my list as one of the best games ever.

Diesel, Drew, David (his brother) and I decided to play it one morning. I was doing good. In fact, i was doing REALLY good. Which is why Diesel masterminded a plan to turn ALL players against me. Attacks on all fronts. Why would a husband do that to his OWN wife? I don’t know, you’ll have to ask him.

Fortunately for me David had to go change a diaper or something, so Dad Sale took over. And then he did it. He broke the alliance and joined ME. And we took Drew down. And then Diesel. We were the last superpowers standing, and it felt good.
