She Beat Me Again and Again

An 87-year-old just beat me at cards. Three times in a row.



My mind!! What's happened to my mind?! (Note to self: Do mental exercises tomorrow... I hope I can remember to do them.)

UPDATE: Make that four times in a row.
UPDATE #2: At Jane's suggestion, I'm going to try to beat her at Candyland tonight.

hey sis,

you might want to move onto something you're good at because it's obvious that it's not cards.

what game were you playing?

A game they play in Florida called "Push Rummy"--she practices all year. But I'm challenging her to "500" tonight, and she won't know what hit her.

Perhaps you should challenge her to Life or Candyland instead?

If you still want to play a card game play War. The odds are 50-50 and you don't need any real strategic thinking.

Gosh. Thanks, Marzi. I think ...

I LOVE Candyland... my kids always beat me though.

Did I ever tell you about what happens to your brain after you have kids?

Do you have children?

BTW-- The results for Idiot of the week are posted

Hi Doctor Mom,
Please tell me what happens to your brain after you have 'em, but know that since I don't have kids, whatever you say won't be an excuse for my losing four games to an 87-year-old. That's just sad.

I'll check out the idiot of the week post, but I'm 99.9% certain Gentry won--the idiot!

Dearest Fancy Zed
When women have children their uterus expands and their brains shrink proportionately.

The uterus is made of muscle, so it snaps back after childbirth, but the brain is matter, so it does not.

Therefore, a woman loses a little bit more of her mind with each child.

That's why some women keep having children, they've lost their bloody minds!

So you can only imagine how together and sane I am since I've never had children? Why, I'm downright brilliant--as I've said all along! :)
