Yesterday was so close to the "big hand" yet it all slipped away. I opened with three soaps, two two dots, two one dots and NEW. I picked the flowers but went dead on the South. Believe it or not, they all went out 1-2-3-4. ARGH! SO SAD!!!
Tomorrow I play with the "Country Club" set at my cousin's in New Jersey. They play the "throw and pick" way and not the "pick and throw," so every tile I have to think: Throw-pick-don't look, throw-pick-don't look. They play an unlimited pie. Last time I was there, I threw in to a singles and pairs hand, and unbeknownst to me, with their complicated table rules, I had to pay TEN DOLLARS for one hand. I was in shock the rest of the day and swore I wouldn't be back, yet here I am going again tomorrow. Glutton for mahjongg? You bet!
