Anne has this Bridge fixation. She’s been trying to get a game together for months. Nelly, Keenan, and I finally went over there last Wednesday to play. Took us a good half hour or so to figure out how to score “Rubber Bridge” as opposed to Tournament Bridge. Even after we knew how to score the game, we still didn’t know why or how we were trying to amount the aforementioned points. After we pieced together all the information, I had misbid the hell out of a few hands, and handed the game to Keenan and Anne. We’ll get ’em next time, I’m sure.

Nelly and I are kick-ass at regular deck Spades (no jokers, no stupid dueces, allow nills…) Bridge isn’t too far off. Another three or four nights, those other two bastards won’t stand a chance.
