|Not Too Shabby!|
Anyway, you may be wondering what this has to do with the title of this post. Well, for some reason (I keep forgetting to ask!) there were several board games at the tables at the party. This was quite a nice move actually- it kept the guests entertained, rather than making them have to try and talk to each other- shock horror! But seriously, it made for an excellent ice breaker and a comedic medium. As I have mentioned previously, I have quite a thing for board games, though I hardly ever get to play them. Eventually I was tempted by a mini set of Connect Four, and (foolishly) challenged by girlfriend to a game.

However, my shame was not strong enough for me not to pull the 'first to three' card, which anyone who has had to paper-scissors-rock for something will recognise as the penultimate move of desperation. So, for a third time I foolishly tried to bluff my way through a game, only to meet the same, agonising fate. Ok, it wasn't that bad, I was getting used to it by now. 3-0, but at least the third game was longer than the second. Definitely time to give up now, yes?

On the bright side, I think I will retire from my Connect Four career and go out on a winning note...
