I always wondered why breaking a cookie jar cost you 63 points, but crashing through thin ice only cost you 21 points. That seemed waaaaay more serious. Still does. But I digress.
If I were to construct a Chutes and Ladders gameboard that represents my life in the last 24 hours, it would look something like this:
Instead of fixing my hair, I slept in = chute
I got to eat dinner for free at Z'Tejas = ladder
I was on local TV = ladder
I looked kind of fat = chute
I said some intelligent things = ladder
I'm pretty sure I said the non-existent word "high-interestly" = chute
I got to meet the superintendent = big ladder
I forgot to turn in my already overdue library book = chute
A gas station attendant said I looked like a girl from America's Next Top Model = ladder
I think that leaves me somewhere near the middle-to-top of the board. Now, if I can just avoid the massive pitfalls of drawing art on the walls and carrying too many dishes at one time, I think I'll be OK.
