I'm not sure what cards my husband was holding because I was his partner in this round and we are not big hairy cheaters -- or big hairy anythings, for that matter -- but it really doesn't bode well, does it?
True to form, I came in dead last in the tournament with the lowest number of points -- my name was laughingly called out as a byword and a warning as everyone commented on my level of play: Incredulously, as in"When she was my partner, we got zero points in that round. ZERO! I didn't even know it was possible to get zero points!" and in a tone of deep gloom, with "Yeah, well, she had the left bower guarded and played it at the wrong time and we totally got euchred. And I had a no-lose hand."
All I can say -- with the shreds of my dignity gathered around me -- is that other people may be able to play some whizzy cards, but not everyone can be counted on for sparkling table conversation, which happens to be my forte. Right, everybody?
