It's the Match Game, And I Keep Losing!
I’ve just finished playing a game. I lost. I always lose.
It’s the “Match Game,” but it’s not like the one that used to be televised.
We often play our own version of the televised game when family and friends are gathered, and it ends up being hilarious. Like when all players are supposed to write down a color. About half usually write red; most of the others typically write blue.
Or name something you might buy. Several people might write clothes or a car or various other things. If one player happens to select vacuum cleaner, it's pretty much a given that there won't be a match.
The object, of course, is to score the most points by having the highest number of matches at the end of the game. It’s a simple game that sounds boring but is actually fun.
What’s not fun is the version I keep playing and losing.
It involves trying to match up The Duppster’s socks after taking them out of the dryer. Like I said, I always lose.
Aside from always having an uneven number after the drying cycle, there’s still the unbelievable chore of matching up the socks that made it through.
Do you know how many different shades of navy blue exist in this world? Well, I don’t know either, but however many there are, The Duppster found ‘em all!
Finally, when I occasionally find exact color matches, I end up having one sock with thin lines and another with thick lines. Or one with ribbing and one without. Or maybe I find matching patterns, but, once again, mismatched colors.
There’s a whole lot of effort involved in matching up these socks.
