You think you can trust your girl friends, right? You think that the people who are with you through thick and thin — literally — wouldn’t turn on you. You think that the only people — besides maybe your husband – who know what you look like without makeup would not set up a trap for you. But that’s exactly what happened to me: Three friends turned on me … and forced me to learn how to play bridge, a game I had long declared to be on my list of things-I-hate-more-than-lima-beans. Go to my weekly TimesDaily newspaper column at to find out how I was the victim of a (friendly) bridge-napping.

  1. I think you are getting revenge!! That’s okay. Just get it all out of your system sweetie……

  2. That is the best trap they might have set! Bridge is a WONDERFUL game. What other game allows you to see half the cards at the very beginning? Stay with it…it’s great fun.

    Of course, it’s entirely possible that you are lacking the “card sense” gene. If that is the case, then give it up before you start. My husband is a brilliant man, but he could never quite catch the game (or any card games other than games of chance). There are many redeeming qualities in a person besides the ability (or lack thereof) to play bridge.
