Cy the Cynic gave me a journey to the membership, and at a pink mild, we stopped beside a plumbing firm’s van that had this data lettered on its aspect:
“Offering high quality service since final Monday morning.”
“Rated No. 1 on the town by the proprietor and his mom.”
And … “When you see us driving unsafely, don’t name anyone. It makes our insurance coverage premiums rise.”
“It’s a must to like their type,” Cy stated.
In a cash recreation on the membership, Cy was at present’s South. His bid of two golf equipment was “new minor forcing” and requested for extra data. When North confirmed three-card coronary heart help, the Cynic bid 4 hearts.
Cy received the primary spade with the ace and cashed the A-Ok of trumps. The queen might need fallen, however this was not Cy’s day. West discarded, and East was certain of two trump tips. Cy led a diamond to dummy’s king efficiently, however he misplaced a spade and a diamond and went down.
“You performed it like a plumber,” I scolded.
“Unfortunate,” Cy retorted.
Cy indulged in some unsafe driving and was punished. He ought to lead a trump to his hand at Trick Two and return a diamond to the king. If East had the ace, Cy would wish to choose up the trumps and would money the opposite excessive trump.
