ROUND UP

hotel for dinner and before dinner they took us up to their room and Ken-that's Mr. Baker-Ken made some cocktails, though I didn't want any and Tom was on the wagon. Iie said a honeymoon was a fine time to be on the wagon ! Ken said.
" Don't tempt him, Ken," I said. " Tom isn't a drinker like you and Gertie and the rest of us. When he starts, he can't stop." Gertie is Mrs. Baker.
So Ken said why should he stop and I said there was good reason why he should because he had promised me he would and he told me the day we were married that if I ever saw him take another drink I would know that
What did you make? Two odd? Well, thank heavens that isn't a game ! Oh, that does make a game, doesn't it? Because Tom doubled and I left him in. Isn't that wicked ! Oh, dearie, please forgive me and I'll promise to pay attention from now on! What do I do with these? Oh, yes, I make them for Arthur.
I was telling you about the Bakers. Finally Ken saw he couldn't make Tom take a drink, so he gave up in disgust. But imagine meeting them on our honeymoon, when we didn't want to see anybody ! I don't suppose anybody does unless they're already tired of each other, and we certainly weren't, were we, Tommie? And aren't yet, are we, dear? And never will be. But I guess I better speak for myself.
There! I'm talking again ! But you see it's the first time we've been with anybody we really cared about; I mean, you're Tom's best friends and it's so nice to get a chance to talk to somebody who's known him a long time. Out there the people we run around with are almost strangers and they don't talk about anything but themselves and how much money their husbands make. You never can talk to them about things that are worth while, like books. I'm wild about books, but I honestly don't believe half the women we know out there can read. Or at least they don't. If you mention some really worth while novel like, say, " Black Oxen," they think you're trying to put on the Ritz.
You said a no-trump, didn't you, Tom? And Arthur passed. Let me see; I wish I knew what to do. I haven't any five-cardit's terrible ! Just a minute. I wish somebody could-I know I ought to take-but-well, I'll pass. Oh, Tom, this is the worst you ever saw, but I don't know what I could have done.
I do hold the most terrible cards! I certainly believe in the saying, " Unlucky at cards, lucky in love." Whoever made it up must have been thinking of me. I hate to lay them down, dear.
