Tis the Season…For Gathering Around the Domino Table

Here we are again at the start of another Holiday season and while some of you are thinking of turkeys and Christmas trees, all I can focus on is the copious amount of shit talking that will occur around the inevitable domino games. So while my family is busy scouring Black Friday ads, I’m practicing my slam.

The games always start innocent enough when I team up with one of my cousins to play a game of dominoes with my grandmother and her sister. “Big Six” is played and then my cheek-kissing, pie-baking, church-going, sweetheart of a grandmother reverts to the way she was before she found the Lawd.
