Women and Solitaire


We’re driving home from the hockey rink in Corona . . . my son’s playing solitaire on his iPod. As we’re pulling off the freeway in Irvine, he says, “I just won my first game the entire trip.”

I say, “When I play it on the computer, I lose most of the time, but once in a while I’ll get like a three-game winning streak.”

“Yeah, me too.”

“It’s like women in that respect. The overall goal is to make you feel bad about yourself, but they throw in just enough positive reinforcement to keep you from giving up completely.”
