There Will Be Games

I get a whole week off!

Today kind of sucked though. It was snowing like a son of a bitch, so the Man had to shovel a lot, so I had no one to play with. My copy of Red November arrived, but we couldn't play because the in laws are here. I had to sit around and talk about opera and real estate and stuff. 

The Spawn was given a copy of Mummy Rummy as a gift, so we played that after dinner. Weirdness was that no one but the Spawn and I had ever played Rummy before, so when I explained that it was pretty much just like Rummy, no one knew what I was talking about. I thought everyone played Rummy. Growing up, we used to play all the time with my grandmother, my mom, the aunts. It was just what you did to kill time. That or dominos.  You always knew when my grandmother got the ace of spades, because she would put her hand over her heart, moan and say something in Italian that sounded like "ahhhh carta morte."
