The end of the year…
As I approach the end of the year, I can’t help but feel excited.
“Why?” you ask.
Well, for a number of reasons: I should be graduating, hopefully we’ll be getting jobs and living far above the poverty line, Ruby will start crawling/walking/talking soon, I will be turning the landmark 25, etc.
But the thing that I am the most excited for is (drumroll please)………….
Skipbo? Let me explain:
Back in 2010 I won every game of Skipbo that Camm and I ever played. Morning, afternoon, or evening, I could slaughter him at that game. I loved it. We would play and play and I won EVERY time. We celebrated the New Year and shortly thereafter played again.
I lost. That’s curious. I always win this game. We played again. I lost. Again. I lost. Lost…lost…lost…lost. Game after GAME. Suddenly it occurred to me that I had not won a single game in the entire year of 2011. I tried again and again. And I lost and lost and lost. Over and over.
What do you think? Will 2012 be my year?
