My house is a bit of a mystery to me still.
I moved into the man's house and it is full of his stuff...
much of which I have not seen.
He collects things.
Lots of things.
Not like a hoarder...
but in an orderly way that fills up a great deal of our storage space.
I came across this great game the other day!
Being a sci-fi fan I was thrilled to find it.
It was his when he was in high school.
Very complex as games go.
The enemy are bugs, so you play on this sort of hive grid.
It has a rule book that rivals any of my appliance manuals.
At least its not in three different languages.
That thing up there is one of the brain bugs.
It also has a bazillion pieces and thingies.
All in tiny boxes with careful labeling.
The man says it takes hours to play.
I am tempted to learn how.
But I don't know.
The man ran off to copy the game pads into the computer...
so I guess that decides it.
One of these nights, we will play.
He always wins at strategical games.
I feel doom coming.
But it is very cool isn't it?
I'm also impressed that he never lost a single game piece.
And that its in such good condition.
I think the only item I have from the 70s
is my Mickey Mouse watch.
I'll let you know how the game goes.
I think I'll let him be the hero...
and I'll be a bug.
So do you have cool things tucked away?
Or are you more like me...
tossing way more than you keep?
