my poor husband!

↑Rugosa Rose's fruit (ハマナスの実)

First of all, I was relieved to hear from my husband's company about the relocation.
My husband didn't have to move this time.
My family can live here for another a half of year at least.

My husband sometimes complains that he tends to come out on the losing end because of his character.
He is serious, quiet, modest, and organized.

Whenever we get sweets, our family shares them equally by the game 'rock, scissors, and paper'. My son is only child, so we want him to learn sharing things.
The other day, we got a box of sweets. There were six all by three of two kinds.
When I opened the box, I knew we can eat two each, which was one of two kinds without the game. So before my son comes home, I had eaten one of two already that day.
When my husband came home from work at that night, I served them. However, he turned it down and said he would eat it after my son comes home from his trip. My son went on a trip and stayed one night.
The next day, after my son came home, he found the sweet box and I allowed him to eat two of them. And I explained there were two kinds of flavors.
Then, after my husband came home from work at night, he opened the box and found that there were two, but they were just the same flavor. That meant my son had eaten only two of his favorite flavor, not two kinds.

Poor, my husband! He always does like that in the end.
I scoled my son, and sympathized with my husband, but we laughed each other.

Whenever we get sweets, our family shares them *equally by playing 'rock, scissors, and paper'. My son is an only child, so we want him to learn to share things.

*I don't understand how the game leads to equal shares. I know the game. Unless it determines the first choice in a round robin pattern of equal distribution with the winner merely picking first...or if by mere happenstance that each would win equal times in a round of successive wins by the next person in the circle...it would naturally lead to an inequitable ending. I am not sure if you meant an equal result or an equal chance to win higher shares or a higher number of first picks.

The other day, we got a box of sweets. There were three of each of two kinds, and so, a total of six.

When I opened the box, I knew we could eat one of each type without the benefit of the game. So, before my son came home, I had eaten one of my two.

When my husband came home from work that night, I served the sweets to him. However, he turned them down and said he would eat his share after my son came home from his trip. My son went on a trip and stayed for one night.

The next day, after my son came home, he found the box of sweets. I allowed him to eat two of them. I had explained there were two kinds of flavors, thinking that he would naturally choose one of each.

After my husband came home from work that night, he opened the box and found that there were two, but they were two of the same flavor. That meant my son had eaten two of his favorite flavor instead of eating one of each flavor.

My poor husband! *Things like this always happen to my husband in the end.

*I am unsure if you meant it this way or if you meant that things like this was something your son had always done in the end.

I scolded my son, and I sympathized with my husband. However, we also had a good laugh together.

I'm relieved that you don't have to move. I feel like I hold my breath every year at this time. Although last year, I was in Japan.

Re: English Corrections

Hi, shiroi tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.

Oh, it was not 'poor my husband' but 'my poor husband'.
And I learned many things this time as well.

As for playing 'rock, scissors, and paper'...

If we got seven sweets, at first we would get two each equally, then a winner would get another one by playing the game.
So, I mean that when we can't divide equally such as the remainder, then we play the game for that.
And when there are various sweets, a winner pick first by playing the game.

As for *Things like this always happen to my husband in the end...

No, my son doesn't always do like this.
My husband is modest, so, like this things often happen to him not only in my family but also in his work place or so.

Re: No title

question

Hi, shiroi tora.

I forgot to ask you.
What is 'robin pattern'?

Answer to Sakae's question

Sakae's Question:

What is the meaning of Round-Robin?

My answer:

(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
A round-robin tournament (or all-play-all tournament) is a competition "in which each contestant meets all other contestants in turn".
