On Mondays and Fridays I pick up the FYO from school at 2:25.
Yes. You heard it: 2:25 p.m.
It is great to have that time with her, but it definitely cuts into my workday which used to go until 5:30 or so.
Today, after her very first piano lesson ever, we had a little separate free time and then decided to try playing LIFE!
While still a bit beyond her, I figured we'd have fun trying.
If you don't remember, you begin by selecting a pink or blue 'peg' and putting it into the driver's seat.
The FYO decided immediately that she had to have a blue peg because
. . . girls don't drive.
Um. . . What?
Yeah. Girls don't drive, so if you have to have someone in the driver's seat, it HAS to be a blue peg!
I'll remember that when you're sixteen and asking for the keys to my car!
She has literally seen four men driving in her entire life: Grandpa, MRM#2 (because MRM#1 literally needs MapQuest to get from his house to his office), FoF, and Sidekick's dad. And even then, when they're with their wives, the WIVES DRIVE!?!
A little further along in the game, one is required to stop at the MARRIAGE stop sign and pick up another peg, pay some taxes, and draw a random piece of luck from the LIFE pile. It so mirrors real life doesn't it?
Upon landing there she exclaims:
Well, I HAVE to have a pink peg!
I literally think I am more bothered by her self-imposed anti-woman generalizations than the societally-inspired homophobia.
