Jason and Bryan came over last night for dinner and games. I even cooked dinner for them. ME! And we all survived! Granted it was just a simple chicken parmesan dish with a salad….(and the sauce came from a jar). But cut me some slack – this is a leaps and bounds ahead of that dinner I prepared for Jason a few years ago: frozen pizza, hot dogs, and sauerkraut.
Anyway, we started off with some Wii tennis and bowling. Then Randy arrived and we had dinner. We ended the night with a game of Rummy-Foo. I know for a fact that I’ve butchered the spelling of the game (Rummy-Fool? Rummy-foux? Rummy-Fous?). It’s apparently French. My friend Marin (who lived in Paris) taught it (or something similar) to me a few year ago and then my friends, Jeff and Paul, came back from a trip to France and taught it to me again when we were in Orange County after Christmas.
Bryan – who played it for the first time, won the game. Randy came in second and I came in third by only 10 points (which is technically one point in this oddly scored game). I won’t say where Jason ended up since he’s fiercely competitive and I refuse to use the L-word to describe him. But that word starts with L, ends with R, and has OSE in the middle. You figure it out.
