Marriage 501, Lecture 621: How we count

As SH and I are teaching his friend Pete, whose surprise birthday party we flew to Pittsburgh to attend, how to play Bananagrams, which we got Pete as a birthday present (along with a card about farting, which is how men who have been best friends since college express affection).

Me: So we each take 15 tiles.

SH: No. When there are three people, you each take 21.

So. We each take 21 tiles.

SH: Hey! When it's 21, you don't count by twos! You should count by threes! That way, it comes out even.

Me: OK Sheldon.

SH: Well, you have five fingers. It works.

Me: It's easier to count by twos.

SH: It's when you want to count by fours that it becomes a challenge.

Me: It's easier to count by twos.

Linda and I were just playing Bananagrams with a couple friends the other night. I kicked ass.
