Safeway Monopoly is back one week from today. This year, I’m ready. My calendar is marked, my strategy honed. But there’s been something missing, and I finally know what it is. My lucky tradition. Athletes wear their lucky shorts and socks. Actors tell each other to “Break a leg” before treading the boards. I believe in luck. I’ve decided. There’s going to be the Game Day Purchase: a Red Baron pizza, a couple of jars of apple sauce, tea. Staples. Never forget the staples.
Wish me luck. I know what I’d do with $1M.
