We’re playing Scrabble with Katie, my niece, and Nigel, her boyfriend. It isn’t going well:
Earlier in the day I taught the two of them how to play gin rummy. In the first game I won with 38 points – Nigel was second with 312 and Katie was whupped and finished on 473. In the second game they had their revenge: Katie won with 182, Nigel was second with 191, and I was taught a lesson in manners and ended up on 358. I hate it when that happens.
