Sometimes you wind up getting dealt a bad hand. My present on-call is playing out like that…

At a certain point, you go down the losing path enough you may as well go for the record!

It’s been the better part of three decades that I’ve played Spades. In Spades there’s the concept of “shooting the moon” where you lose in a very special way, such that you actually win.

I’m feeling in that position now. If I can’t win by having a smooth on-call… I may as well set a record. No… I’m not doing things that will break the system — I’m not an asshole like that.

Oh well. Back to the grindstone.
