An Old Fashioned Woman Playing the New Way

I’ve been spending a lot more time with my grandmother these days. I used to find going to her house boring because she would always tell a lot of long stories, but I learned that she liked to play cards, and we started playing with each other. I told her that it was possible to make money by playing cards on betting sites, and she begged me to show her how to do it. This is the same person who doesn’t like to use the phone or computer because she thinks they’re too difficult, but since card games are involved, she’s willing to learn how to use them.

Learning how to use my phone wasn’t that difficult for my grandmother, but she didn’t like how small the screen was for playing games. She prefers to have something larger so she can see the text and press on the screen more accurately. I had just the thing at home for her to use that would get her right into playing online games. I bought a tablet a couple of years back and I was getting ready to buy a new one to replace it, so I decided to let my grandmother have the old one so she could play on it. It has just the right screen space for her to see and touch.

My grandmother adjusted to the tablet pretty quickly and was playing all kinds of card games online. She spent a lot of time playing poker, which she used to play a lot with my grandfather. If she told me that they were both card sharks before they became old, I would probably believe her. She was winning all of the games that she played, and eventually, she wanted to play against me in a game for money.
