I am extremely competitive. The Wife may be even more so, if that is possible. So, it comes as no surprise that The Boy has inherited this trait. However, he has managed to take it to a new level. He cannot lose. He will tax that little brain of his until he can rationalize that he did, in-fact, triumph.
Example - the three of us were playing Life. When we had finished, we counted our earnings. The Wife announced her tally. $1,700. The Boy went next. $2,700. Lastly, me. $6,200.
"Daddy and me won! Mommy lost!"
