While on vacation with friends, including Joe (can’t believe I just called him a fucking friend), we became obsessed with the card game Dominion. If you haven’t heard of or played this game yet, I am telling you … BUY IT NOW. It is as addictive as crack cocaine (not that I have that frame of reference, but I’ve heard things) and as fun as bubble wrap.
In fact, we became so obsessed, we played the game repeatedly inside the cold, dark beach house, instead of going out by the pool, the beach or just out doing things in general.
“Wow that was a great round, guys!” Joe said to us all after I beat everyone’s ass.
“Sure was … lets play again!” said another friend.
“OK,” Joe agreed, “but lets take it out to the pool.”
“We can’t, you asshat,” I chimed in (I was a little drunk-skies). “The cards will blow all over in the wind.”
“But they won’t blow everywhere,” Joe insisted, “if they’re glued to the table!”
Everyone’s eyes roll.
“Seriously, guys! This could be big! Now, regular glue just wouldn’t work, but what about tacky glue? You could glue cards to the table, or to one another, and then just pull them apart with just a little effort! Think of all the people in this world who like card games. Thanks to my invention, no longer would they be confined to the indoors … take your games to the pool, to the beach, to the moon!”
