My Mah Jongg memory with Millie was when I was first learning the game and Lisa, Cindy, Nancy, Laura, and myself were playing at Lisa’s and Millie was visiting from New York. I was asking her all kinds of questions and we were talking and laughing and eating and talking and talking and joking around and… oh yea, we were playing Mah Jongg too! Millie was so frustrated with us. She couldn’t believe how long it took for us to play one round! Of course she figured it out quickly when she spent time with us for one evening. But we had so much fun and she solved so many of our problems…and, oh yea, we played Mah Jongg too! We talked so much or should I say I talked so much, I couldn’t remember whose turn it was or if I picked a tile or not.
I must say Millie, you were a great teacher to us and it really helped to have a genuine Mah Jongg Maven around to help us learn and give so many smart tips to get us going. I really miss not seeing you and hope to see you again soon. Happy Birthday and Best Wishes for many more memorable Mah Jongg games!!!!
P.S. If you come and visit Connecticut again, I promise to shut up and play faster next time!
