On Saturday we finished a dominoes game that began last year in the Dominican Republic. Renee, Michael, Jim and I started a game in Luperon but quit for the night before we finished. It can take as long as 4 hours to play a game of Mexican Train Dominoes. We agreed we'd finish it another time but shortly after that Mike and Renee left Luperon and we haven't all been back together until this past week. Jim was winning so for all this time we've been listening to him declare himself the champion. We've been listening to his trash talk for almost a year. He wanted to know if we just wanted to concede this victory to him and start a new game? Well, it ain't over till the fat lady sings and I haven't even hummed a note. Set em up! With rum punch in hand, we dueled it out. I was so far behind there was no saving me. Jim and Mike were neck-n-neck until the final round when unfortunately for Jim, he took a doleful drubbing.
Then he started hoarding the snacks. This was not very sportsmanlike behavior!
A couple of rum punches later the match was forgotten as Mike and Jim started pointing out cloud faces to each other. (what was in that punch?)
Jim has demanded a rematch! He claims Mike wasn't really working in Mexico for the past 3 months but was getting Mexican Train Dominoes instruction from a master. Stay tuned
