Before she died, mom loved to play Pig, one of those card games best played by the very young, the very old or the very drunk. The ace and face cards of all four suits are shuffled and distributed among four players. Cards are passed face down clockwise. The first person with four of a kind signals by thumbing his nose. When players see this they quickly thumb theirs. The last to notice suffers the taunt “Pig” by the others and hilarity ensues. As always mom, oxygen hose insitu quietly signaled, waiting for the rest of us to catch on.
