Jack Of Clubs

Posted in Trifecta, Undogegorized by chamblee54 on April 15, 2013






Last week in this space, there was a plan for after dinner entertainment on a Saturday evening. The piece was performed Saturday the thirteenth, the opposite of Friday the thirteenth.

There were only twenty five people in the house when the after dinner circle convened. PG told the players to get in a counter clockwise circle, and made a gesture indicating that the circle should be clockwise. Sometimes showing that you can be corrected makes you a better leader.

After the small groups were formed, and the players sent out for dessert, PG drew a card. The Jack of Clubs picked him. After all the instructions to the other participants about being open to intuition, PG drew a blank. What on earth does the Jack of Clubs see in his soul?

After the main circle broke into groups of four, there was one player left over. The PG group became a group of five. The consensus was that the person with the highest card should go first. A man with an ace went first, and said something.

PG said that his card was about all the jack he used to spend in the clubs. The man on the card looked unhappy, as card royalty often does. Perhaps PG should loosen up, and start to spend more time in the clubs. If this is going to happen, it will happen later. This Saturday, PG went directly home.

Perhaps the clearest message was received by the man seated next to PG. He had the Five of Spades. There were five azalea plants in his yard, and it was past time to trim them back.

A decision was made to not pass the cards around the circle, but to talk about tv shows. PG was forced to admit that he had never seen “The Golden Girls.” The color of his face told many stories.

Pictures are from The Library of Congress. These are Union soldiers, from the War Between the States.

    It’s good to hear the party entertainment went so well. I like the idea of considering what a card could mean for someone!

    I enjoyed how this was about everything but a card game. Nicely written.
