We’ve taken to playing Hearts, my little family. Usually in the evening, after dinner and the dishes, at the table. We have several decks, including the Tropicana Deck
(a used deck from the Las Vegas casino, where I stayed exactly one night before we decided that the lumpy beds and the Viagra-assisted couple next door were not conducive to sleep), and several no-name decks, in various stages of grubbiness.
Christmas rolled around, and we decided a new deck was in order . . . but there had been so much snow, we weren’t going to make further stops on our one venture out, and we stumbled across this pretty pink set from Bicycle.
Beautiful, right? Bicycle’s a good company. Their cards are sturdy and grub-resistant . . . but I should have paid a little more attention to the half-picture on the back. I should have considered the ramifications.
