You have to pretend your cards are a family. The Ace is the mother and the small cards are the children. You know what happens when a mother leaves her children? They become orphans, and that is a terrible thing to do to your children. Therefore, when you play this suit you have to keep the mother with the children. Dont make them orphans!
For amusement I sometimes question her about these stories, and something about this one was unsettling. When she tells her students to duck the first two rounds (keeping the mother), isnt this like giving away some of your children? As I see it, you start with seven children, and youre asking the students to give away four of them as soon as they can. Talk about breaking up a family! Mabel thought about this for a moment and offered:
No, youre not giving them away. Some of the children must leave for school. Its just important to keep the mother around to care for whichever children are still at home.
Well, some day I may learn this game. At least you kept the father out of your story.
Copy this and Mabel will put you in her stories.
