Everyone’s Playing the Same Game

During a gathering at the Sloane Residences in Singapore, I met a few people who love to play pool. I’ve been playing the game since I was a kid, when my father taught me how to play on our pool table. He showed me how to make all kinds of shots, and I eventually became better at the game than him. The people who I talked to wanted to have a game, so we decided to go back to one condo, where one of them had a pool table set up. I didn’t bring a table with me, and hadn’t had the chance to purchase one, so I was a bit out of practice.

Even though I hadn’t played the game in a while, I was still able to make some good shots and win some games. The other people were really impressed with my pool skills. We decided that we should hang out more often and watch the pool competitions when they air on television. When the next pool competition happened, everyone met at my condo to watch it. I had food and drinks all set up, and it was like watching a football match.

Watching all of that pool put us in the mood to play a couple of games ourselves, so we went back to the other condo to play on the table. The other guys had gotten better since the last time I played with them. I think that they were a little worried that they wouldn’t be able to beat me since playing with me, so they decided to put in some work and enhance their skills. Still, I was able to win a lot of games, even with their improved skills. I’d love to get my father in on one of these games the next time he visits me.
