:::Pick a Card, Any Card:::

It's like I'm performing a reverse card trick for the Lord.

I fan out the possibilities of life, carefully pull one from the deck, and with a mix of nerves and hope I ask,

'Is this my card?'

Answer -- 'No.'


O-kaaay.

(draw)

'Is this my card?'

'No.'


Hmm.

(draw)

'How about this card, is this it?'

'No.'


(shuffle, draw)

'Tada! Is this my card?'

'Mmm, close.'

'Yaho--'

But, then again, no, not really.'



And on and on we go.


Four of each kind, twenty-six of each color, thirteen of each suit.



How many times through the deck, Lord?

Till you get the right one, silly! Best of luck (of the draw). :)

I'd like to see that.

Sometimes, I think the Lord likes to hide the best cards up his sleeve and slips them in the deck right when I need them, because if I win he wins too.

You might like to see it, but you won't want to feel it. BAM!

Clever. This seems like an accurate representation of what life feels like sometimes. Hope you have a lot of fun while you're picking cards.
