And Suddenly It Sounded Like Less Of A Good Idea

Walk with me on this one.

A while back our family got gifted with a set of assorted card games with custom decks for each game. One of those games was Old maid, and yesterday my son asked me if I wanted to play it.

Before answering I explained to him that the term “Old maid” was an outdated insult, but the game itself was harmless enough (beyond arguably needing a new name), so I said yes. The custom deck had matching fruit and vegetable cards, and the “old maid” card actually looked more like a young farmer that I thought like L’s Mother in overalls. (She agreed with this, by the way.) So it seemed like a good idea at that moment in time to suggest that we rename the game in our house after L’s mother.

Until I realized that by the rules of the game, whoever ended up with her card was the loser . . .
