Oh the Game We Could Play...

We dream therefore we are.  

Okay, I had a dream. I know that we all dream all the time and that most of the time the dreams are a bit wacky. I usually don’t remember my dreams much the next day.

But this one stuck with me.

It stuck with me so much that I had to figure out it was a dream.  Not only that, the idea still pops up in my mind occasionally. I have mentioned my dream to several family members and all I have gotten is an eye roll. 

To be honest, it is not a full dream. It is a concept from a dream. I now think of it as the dream that will not die. 

Why am I telling you this? Because my dream has a connection to diabetes. 

Are you ready? Ready to roll your eyes and think that perhaps I have lost my mind?

Diabetes Monopoly

In case you have never seen themed monopoly games, they exist. There is a Star Wars Monopoly,a  Dog-opoly, a Golf-opoly, a  Beatles Monopoly and many more. 

This is a Chicago Edition of Monopoly.  It is really old.  You can tell, one of the squares is Marshall Fields.

That is it. I just keep thinking about it. Why anyone would want to play it seems to be a mystery but just give me a moment. 

I wonder if it could be a teaching tool in schools. Perhaps there could be a junior edition for lower grades and a regular edition for older grades. It could teach the non-diabetic students about diabetes. 

What do you think? Are you rolling your eyes or wondering if it could work?  I am hoping now that I have put the concept out that I will stop thinking about it. I don’t think it will work but now I will let you think about it.  Let me know what you think!

IMPORTANT NOTE:  As I was putting this post together to go online, I was looking for images to put into the post.  THE GAME EXISTS!!!  So I will accept the apologies from all of you who were making fun of me.

Thanks for reading!
