Mom: A Tale of Blue Monopoly Houses

To save money, I had decided near the 2008 winter break to make homemade Monopoly sets for each of my co-workers. The idea was genius — dedicate each property name to the numerous departments and make them one-of-a-kind collector items.

My brief flirtation with Christianity even turned…
