My Husband Rocks

Dear Darling Husband,
This week, on Date Night, you taught me how to play Rummy.
Or was it called Rummy 500? 500 Rummy? I had never played before, unless you count Sesame Street Rummy with Little Sis — and you didn’t.
I have always been a bad card-player, but you are a total card shark. It always amazes me that you can play any card game imaginable, and you win at all of them! You can count cards, which is like a freaking Matt Damon movie come to life.
Thank you for not laughing too hard at my bewildered expressions as we played — and for putting the cards back after I shrieked, “No! Please! I was going to pick those ones up!”
You’re quite a guy.
Love, your wife
We love rummy too .. we play all the time when we're just relaxing at home. It's nice to have fun, free activities on hand.
I actually liked it a lot more than I expected. I don't really find card games relaxing yet, though, haha — I have to concentrate so hard at them!
