This was funny...and interesting. I'm laughing at this one particularly:

"84. I like playing Bourre.

85. I just had to look up how to spell 'Bourre'. I wanted to put Boo-ray."

I thought that "Boo-ray" was how you spell it! LOL!

Personally, I've never played it, but I'm not too bad at Spades. ;-)
