True dat

Lileks is always a treasure. Every now and then though, he really hits it out of the park. Excerpt:


What’s this Bunco thing your wife does? It’s a hen party. They meet at different houses, roll the bones, eat, enjoy cold libations. It is the absolute antithesis of poker. In poker men sit in silence, studying their cards and the other players; in Bunco everyone is talking, and no one is paying attention to the game. You could film six men playing poker, and sixteen women playing Bunco, and you would learn everything you need to know about the difference between the sexes and the nature of each. By our games do we know ourselves.

I'll admit it: I'm a Bunco widower every other Tuesday. ::sob::

In any event, stay tuned for post-drinkiness daily GABF diary entries.

Sheesh. I drank so much that I actually haven't wanted a beer all day. Then again, I'm at work, so it's probably just as well.
