Every time
Every time I play Mahjong on my iPhone, I'm reminded of when I was waiting in the bathroom line at one of the imperial guard houses at the edge of Tiananmen Square. I was playing the game while waiting forever and a day, and one of the other women looked over my shoulder to see what I was doing. She smiled, did that happy giggle behind the hand that the Chinese like to do, and pointed out to my screen to her friend.

That memory, along with how the women in the elevator smiled and pointed to my panda hat, are two of my fondest memories of the people we interacted with when we were in Beijing.

My MIL is ADDICTED to Mahjong. She undertook to teach me how to play, and regularly wipes the floor with me.

You got a Mahjong board you can bring to NYE?

We'd need two others, though. And agree on the rules (I don't play with the American league rules, but have cheat sheets for the ones I use).

I do not. Mom took hers to FL with her to go beat up Aunt Rita and the old birds down there.

Assuming I have room in my bag, is it worthwhile for me to try bringing mine?

[And I'm only going to have room if we check a bag, so I don't know how likely it will be.]
