On Friday night Terence was invited to go and play poker at his squash club. It is not serious or anything and more about the socialising. And basically all the players would pay an entry fee (they then all get the same amount of chips) and the winner wins the full amount. The squash club provided some snacks and people could buy drinks. So it is more to attract people to the club and to enable the players to get together and have some fun. Terence was doing pretty well until almost at the end when he started feeling sick. So it turned out he got my bug and in the end had a pretty rough night.
It turned out that it was a Cross Pen that I won. Wow, I don't think I ever won anything before. This was because I recently submitted a letter to a newspaper. At the time there was a news report of a little girl who was subjected to terrible abuse like being spun on a washing line until she fell off, dumped in an ice cold bath and then put in a tumble drier with the drier turned on. I was absolutely horrified, so wrote about my sadness and disgust that she had to die at the hands of these horrible horrible people.
