On the second Wednesday of each month a group of twelve ladies get together to play BUNCO- a dice game based on zero skill and 100% luck. Well, I happen to be part of this elite twelve, the youngest part for sure (our group average age would be 42 if I took a guess) and really enjoy this monthly, dinner provided, $10 buy-in, sometimes victorious event. Anyway, this past week got a little crazy!
As usual, my sister Dani was a bit obnoxious in her loud counting of points and opponent trash talking, but I never saw the reaction of my teammate coming...never! Long story short, we rolled and wiped out (this is where you lose all your points) in the last round of the game. Well, I made some comments about how the game wasn't over yet etc. etc. Low and behold, my sister threw the dice and wiped out too! So just when I thought things couldn't get any better, my teammate rolls and starts YELLING her points...and yes I mean yelling- it was startling to say the least. After my sister had an unsuccessful roll, my teammate preceded to shout out her lack of points and threw both fists down on the table- bouncing the dice up and off! Keep in mind, we're not at a WWE event- this is a small suburban home and this behavior is coming out of a 4ft. 9 grandmother of two, approximately 57 years of age.
This story ends with a loss for me and my teammate and the inability to look at Penny the same ever again.
