I Should Start Checking Her Sleeves for Aces

Claire told M tonight that she had a surprise for him. She brought him into the playroom where she had set up a game of memory. Claire went first and, amazingly enough, got a match on the first try with two adjacent picks. Hmm...

A couple more turns revealed that Claire had stacked the deck. All the matches were lined up, one after another. Despite the lack of challenge, every match resulted in exultant cheers of, "I got a match!" I wish I could run around clapping for myself and saying things like, "I'm walking upright!" or "I bought this on sale at JC Penney!" (When was the last weekend that there WASN'T a sale at Penney's?)

That's pretty funny. Good thing we don't gamble... she might get herself into trouble!
