Euchre and the power of the ether

This was a non-traditional Thanksgiving at best. My Brother Beaker flew solo (sort of) on the family trip. My wife and I both worked. We had turkey at work, but our friends backed out on us for dinner, so I made food and we ate it in front of the TV.

To avoid must-see TV, I came upstairs to play Euchre on-line. I do it anonymously. Yahoo! is a wonderful thing sometimes.

If you don't know how it works...people from all over the world hop on-line and play a virtual game of Euchure. You generally get your partner at random. It just so happened that the partner I drew had to quit in the middle of the game. We opened up the table to outsiders. Some guy with a name I never saw before ended up at the table across from me. We played a few hands, chatting idly with our opponents. Pretty soon I broke out a Frolf reference and my partner's virtual eyebrows went up.

To make a long and very spooky story short...my accidental partner turned out to be my good friend and Su's husband. Millions of people on line. Thousands playing Euchre. And I end up in the same four-player room as Su's hubby. Small world.

It's now midnight and I have to work tomorrow.

It's nice to have my non-holiday done with.
