We have our dominoes routine.

Most mornings after breakfast,
we break out the box of dominoes and play a few games.

Lots of trash talk.

And I keep score.

When we're done, the dominoes go back in the box,
and the score pad and pen go on top
before the lid goes on.

Not to be disturbed until the next round begins.


Imagine my shock one morning
when I opened the box and found this:

Someone had tampered with the score pad.

And not just a little.

What had been a 5 to 2 score
when we finished the day before
had suddenly become 105 to 2.

Is nothing sacred anymore?
And is there no subtlety?

I especially like the two exclamation points.
