Last night my mom, my cousin Sibylle, her son Kay (pronounced “Kai”) and I gathered around the coffee table for some “Fast and Furious Family Fun!” Also known as the board game Frustration.

“This is a lot like my life right now!” I half-joked, half-whimpered, as I willed my blood pressure to go down. Each of my opponents passed me, sent me back to home base (on several occasions), and then arrived at the finish line. This is what the board looked like after 1st, 2nd, and 3rd took their spots on the podium:
Don’t worry. I kicked their butts in Tri-Ominos.
