Would you play this game?

I'd had a dream about buying a new house, one that needed a lot of work but had an interesting pool in the side yard. The pool sides and bottom were smooth rounded off-white porcelain, so that it looked like a giant bathtub sunk into the ground. I remember trying to guess the size with someone and asking if they thought it was 9' x 13' or 8' x 10' (which are more like rug sizes :-P).

But in the half-hazy state of waking up from that dream, my mind came up with a game, one that would use event cards and dice. It would be called "House Fly" and you'd play a fly trying to, er, survive? or get outside? But the cards would be things like "you saw a bright light and lots of food, but now it's dark and very cold; roll to see if someone opens the refrigerator again" and "the dog ate something that disagreed with it and no one noticed in time to let it out: FEAST!" and "the cat is bored and decides you're a plaything: do you stay on the ceiling (lose one turn) or tease it?" and "there's a pot of soup on the stove and it smells delicious: roll to see if you get a meal or become a joke".

I have no idea where the idea came from.

It sounds like something Cheap Ass Games would publish, actually.
