Hello World!

Never ever play games with children 10 or under. After much whining, this afternoon I was coerced into playing 'Guess Who?' which my brother had unearthed from the garage.

He cheated repeatedly by putting back all the cards he didn't like (such as the women, because there are far more men than women), and then deducing who I had by rifling through the leftover card pile.

Anxious to get my own back, throughout the next game I proceeded to answer every question with a lie. For some reason, he didn't seem to appreciate that. I wonder why.;)
