Modern Gentlemen …

… invent things.

Without question, the offensively named "Old Maid" was invented by a man.

Easily bored, I find ways to occupy myself with the materials and abilities at my disposal.  So far, I have developed:

  • a method of knitting hats that requires minimal skill, meaning one need only know how to knit, purl and subtract stitches;
  • a card game easy enough for my grandmother to learn but engaging enough for those of sound mind to play repeatedly — called “Old Fish,” it derives its rules and objectives from “Old Maid” and “Go Fish”;
  • and a drinking game called “Love It/Hate It” where each player takes a turn naming a person, place or thing, after which the other players scream whether they “love it” or “hate it.”
