Not Playing With a Full Deck

Literally!

I’m actually very good at Solitaire and I really enjoy playing it with actual cards as opposed to on the computer–there’s just something about the tactile nature of it that appeals to me. But that night I really was off my game. There were something like half a dozen deals before I gave up and then I grab a book I was working from and find the reason for my less-than-stellar performance.
