that game's stupid

because it’s all luck and no skill.

And the distribution of talent and intelligence isn’t a matter of luck?

whilst at CVS.

After I swiped my credit card, the cashier handed me a coupon.
“Next week, if your purchase is thirty dollars or more, you get twenty dollars off.”
“Wow, what I deal!” I said, “Is this some special thing that only I get?”
“No. It’s a special promotion we’re doing for all of our customers.”
“Oh,” I said, “…I thought I was special.”
I turned away with a look of defeat on my face.
“But you are special!” she genuinely protested, smiling ardently.
“Not for that reason.” I ejected in retort, half smiling.
She smiled back. Her cheeks were ablush with confession.
