LOL! Before you get in an uproar wondering why I would be cheating anyway, let me tell you a little story.
Hubby and I like to have fun together. We will often play games, joke, and have some good old fashioned fun. We don't do anything serious. Nobody gets hurt…emotionally or physically. It is all in a kind-hearted nature.
One of the games we play is "double pinochle." It is just the two of us and to make it more interesting we play with a "dummy hand."
Anyway, for those of you who don't know the game, I shared two very good things to have in your hand and their corresponding points. A double run is worth 150 points and double aces are worth 100 points. Both of these are very good things to possess; two of the highest valued things in double pinochle.
Well, as I recall, hubby was ahead of me. He had been getting good hands with good points. I hadn't been getting much of anything. So, when he had to get up to do something, I took the opportunity to hide four aces (one of each suit), so when I dealt, I could make sure I had them. I was trying to give myself double aces, but he came back too fast.
I ended up giving HIM a double run worth 150 points and I didn't even get the double aces!!! I couldn't believe it. When I told him what I did, we both started laughing. Hubby still picks on me about that moment at times! I am one of the only people that I know who can manage to give the other person a better hand while trying to cheat and give myself a better hand. Ugh! LOL!
Like I said, I am not a very good cheater. I think it is because, I don't want to cheat. I feel guilty if I even think about doing it. My heart is not in it. I guess it is true for the positive and the negative things in life… you are better at something when your heart is in it!
