I have to say, Yahtzee is like a bad boyfriend for me. I LOVE to play Yahtzee, and I really shouldn't. It's loud - I don't like loud, in general. And, the biggest reason for me NOT to play is that I NEVER, and I mean NEVER get the 3rd of ANYTHING I need. I can get a Yahtzee occasionally, but do I win that game? NO... because I couldn't get the bonus on the top half, because I got a 43, not a 63.
If the children (either one, but Yordanos especially) has a 1,2, and 4 and they need a 3 and5 to make their Large Straight, they will get it... every time. I don't even try, when I can't get three stinkin' 1's to save my life. Today Habtamu rolled a Yahtzee... in ONE roll. Yesterday he rolled, literally, 10 Full Houses. Today I rolled a 1,2,5,4,4. I needed three 3's. Oh, yeah.
And YET... tomorrow, when the kids want to play, I will totally play because I keep thinking, "This time will be different, right? I have to win sometime, right? Those dice totally didn't MEAN it when they didn't give me what I needed, right?"
Maybe I need a Yahtzee intervention.
You can ask my children... I am not exagerating about my "bad luck" at dice. They noticed it before I said anything, and now we just laugh when Mommy has to cross yet another item out. If anyone gets a bad roll, they say "Oh. Just like Mommy's rolls!"
Ha ha ha... Ho ho ho... heh heh... um, yeah...
