BOARD WITH MARRIED LIFE
Serendipitous Shopping: Our Unfettered Correspondent Seeks Out The Salubrious
And The Cerebral
BY Mopsy Strange Kennedy
Local couple Erik Sebesta and Lisa Bozoyan, married since 2002, designed the board game You Haven’t Changed A Bit! to give the recently or about-to-be betrothed a bit of golden-anniversary inspiration.
Move over Jessica and Nick. That glossy twosome probably won't make it 50 more weeks, in contrast to the couples featured in this board game who have been married for 50 years. Great for wedding showers, the game has you figuring out which of the brides and grooms pictured on their wedding day, so long ago, match the couples shown in their current incarnations. The wonderful title, "You Haven't Changed A Bit!" is sweet because time's winged chariot has certainly moved the subjects and their clothes from one era to another. It’s not easy to see which couple now was that couple then, and that provides the requisite competitive element. The back of each card tunes you into some comfy, road-tested advice from these veterans of wedlock. Some advise common interests—like cookouts, family life, and golf—others cite comfortably divergent interests, complementary rather than symmetrical. One wife says she's still in love with "that grin." He says, "She's still 'The Boss,' but a very understanding one." One couple met at an "off-color St. Patrick's Day Minstrel show," which, the husband notes, "wouldn't be politically correct these days." If you know a golden couple yourself, Sebesta and Bozoyan are looking for new candidates for future editions of the game.
