As our two-year anniversary approaches, I've been buying up presents like a storm, and subsequently feeling totally tormented about waiting half a month to give them to Ben. I even locked them in my school locker, not because Ben will go looking for them, but because I will inevitably have a meltdown and try to give them to him and if they're an hour away, I'm less likely to follow through.
But! I did find these Uno cards, and while they were intended for an anniversary extra, I cracked and broke them out during our staycation. The awesomeness of Uno just could not wait.
OK, maybe the first time we played was after our Mexican fiesta and I wasn't in my brightest of minds, but after a couple of nights of hardcore Uno playing, I can safely safe I had no effing idea Ben was a secret Uno master. I mean seriously! This kid was ditching his deck like he was doing it his whole life. Every. Time.
So then I started to get competitive. Thinking a few moves a head. Stra-te-gizzzzing.
No. Out of like, 60 games, I won twice. Twice! This must be turned around.
Would it be totally ridiculous and pathetic if I googled "strategies to winning Uno"?
But I might.
Ben drunkenly declared that he was the "green king" and I thought it was so funny and awesome, I took this picture to remind myself.
