Helen waits to hear Laura's
reading of the cards
In between yawns and lethargic moments of tea consumption, this evening turned out to be full of revelations - not surprising really when colour cards are the main prop. Laura (Sue) displayed finely honed interpretation skills - Mark, it was revealed, will sire no less than five children; Scanner (Mike) has a passionate homelife. There wasn't time for my cards to be read this evening but the prop itself was a revelation for me - how did Henry find the time and patience to colour each card in so neatly ? Moreover, why didn't his felt-tip pens start to fade and dry out half way through the task as the felt-tip pens of my childhood always used to do ? A set of cards individually hand coloured, now there is dedication for you.

Whilst I was marvelling Henry's penmanship, the group focus switched to marketing the cards - you too will one day be able to own your very own set, available to buy at a Foiled convention near you !

There were other revelations too - how did Mike mange to spring up from the beanbag he was sitting on each time someone mentioned Aliens ? Why has Helen got an annoying habit of turning off electrical appliances whilst others are trying to use them ? Most perplexing of all, how did Henry train his stomach to rumble that loudly ? (Henry: lack of food...)
