Lesson #98: Humility in Cards

Our dear friends taught us a new card game a few weeks back.  Unfortunately for them, we love the game and want to play ALL of the time! To keep things from heating up between couples, we diffused the situation by having the wives pair up and the husbands pair up.  

Poor husbands!  Since the inception of the competition the husbands have never taken the lead.  We have tied a few times, but the wives have always prevailed.  (Webster says, to prevail means to prove more powerful than opposing forces; be victorious)  I think that about sums it up.  

 We decided to take our game on the road.  We were flying to another state for a four day get-away and passed the time playing a friendly game of Skipbo in the airport lounge.  

(I'm the one with the camera.)

The husbands tied things up 15 - 15 with a win that morning.  

But the wives have since taken the lead (AGAIN.)


  1. Yeah, you're not even funny on this one. We might throw Skip-bo to the ground!

  2. That's right, sista!! The wives prevail!

  3. Uhm, let the record show it is again tied up. And the new leaders will emerge very soon! Keep a weather eye on the horizon.

  4. Oh the love of friendly competition! It is freindly still, right?! =-)
    How funny you all are!!!!!
