Question of the Day #755
"I'll take a five." The girl next to me tapped the table in front of her cards.
The dealer gave her a five of hearts. That, plus her 10 and six, totaled 21.
"Nice," she said.
"Where are you from?" I asked.
The dealer dealt me a 17.
"Connecticut," she replied. To the dealer she said, "I'd like something small. Less than a six."
The dealer handed her a five. Her cards totaled 20.
The dealer showed 19. I lost. Connecticut won.
"I like how you just tell her what you need," I said.
"You gotta ask for you want," she said as she took a gulp from her Miller Lite.
"So where are you from?" she asked.
"I live in LA, but I'm originally from Jersey," I said.
"Oh, I grew up in Jersey too," she said.
"Of course you did," I said. Then I studied my cards. A ten and a 7.
"I'd like a four please," I said to the dealer.
Going forward, I'm going to take a lesson from that Jersey girl. What about you? Do you ask for you want?
