Early this morning, I received a call from Man-Child. He'd called in sick and was headed this way for a doctor's appointment a mile up the road. He wanted to have lunch after his appointment; which would only work if I could be home between 1:00 pm and 5:00 pm. We agreed to see how it worked out.
Turns out, as I was headed toward the house, he was just leaving the doctor...not quite enough time for lunch - as he wasn't hungry just yet - as he is suffering from a possible sinus infection coupled with a tough of the Norovirus. So we met at the house and played some cards; rummy to be specific.
As he has the ability to see "three steps ahead" he won that first round handily. I then fed him a sandwich and he took a nap.
Then, prior to dinner, he called for a re-match. And this was tweeted out...
FYI...there is a CUTTHROAT game of rummy going on over here. Where DID this child of mine get that competitive streak from? 🤔— Gigi (@gigirambles) January 29, 2019
And then he won the second game...
At that child? He is smug when he wins. Surely, he learned that from his dad! 🤣— Gigi (@gigirambles) January 30, 2019
And, there you go. When you can't beat a six-year old at checkers; don't try to beat a twenty-four year old at cards.
As a side note, win or lose, I LOVE playing games with him...and that he likes to play with me, especially now that he's an "adult."— Gigi (@gigirambles) January 30, 2019
And it's true...there's no one else I'd rather lose too...even if he is smug about it! But that next game? That one is mine!
