Tag: three card monty

New York Minute

I had a cousin who visited New York when he was a teenager and was determined to win at three card monty. I didn’t understand. Those were games you just couldn’t win. And even if you did win you’d get jumped rounding the corner so what was the pernt?

He lost, of course, and then played again. Lost again.

Don’t see those games around too much anymore.
