Into a crate I threw a few board games to take to the cross-cultural event with our new alien friends: backgammon, a chess set, a few from my childhood and a couple of modern games.
They leafed through the boxes and paused at Monopoly. “We have this game too. We call it ‘Supremacy’. It has ruined several friendships. Let us not ruin ours.”
We enjoyed all the other games.
Consider this a friendly, local pub. Make yourself at home, bring your friends, have a good time! Meet new people, have a laugh, enjoy the ambience, and the Oxford commas.
