As an addendum to my last post, I can now report that I have lost 6 out of 7 games of Risk: Godstorm against my sig-other, including five in a row. However, I have prepared an excuse for each defeat:
1. The sun was in my eyes.
2. The dog ate my "Sink Atlantis" card.
3. I let her win because otherwise she cuts me.
4. Godstorm? I thought we were playing Chinese Checkers!
5. Parallel Universe Jeremy has also won 6 out of the 7 games. So there!
6. This is all part of my long-term plan to lull her into a false sense of invincibility. Her uppance will come!
Stay tuned for more in this epic saga.
