Bridge Players Make Strange Bedfellows

Queens of Mean

She is a Libra--an air sign, the salt of the earth.
I am Capricorn--the goat, dogged and determined, an earth sign

She is a nurse. I worked with bits and bytes forever.

She grew up in Georgia. She thinks she has lost her southern accent. I was born in North Carolina and grew up in Washington, DC.

She likes to sleep in a bed with corners tucked in.
I can't sleep with sheets and covers restricting me. We can't share a bed when we travel together.

She has a long-time husband.
It's been a long, long time ago for me.

She is white and blond. (I suspect she's a Republican).
I am black in a dread-locked pony tail.

Her cholesterol is very low--she'll eat any meat.
I am diabetic--my doctor watches my "bad" cholesterol level with a magnifying glass. Saturated fats and cholesterol get scrubbed from my diet. Sometimes I drool over her high-fat choices.

She plays tennis weekly. I manage a stationary bike 4 or 5 times a week.

She has 3 grandsons. I have 2 grandsons and a granddaughter. Her grands are fairly long distance. Mine are fairly local. She once drove 400 to 500 miles in an ice storm to baby sit.

She is a long-standing bridge partner. We share a great love and enthusiasm for tournament bridge.

Our occasional defense of a bridge hand has been so devastating to our opponents that a male bridge player dubbed us the "queens of mean."

Well I like the bond you show between you and your bridge partner in this. You do a great job showing that you have differences but are ultimately connected by what you both love doing. I dubbed you the Queen of Hearts! So Keep on rising and doing your thing!
