Show Description
Reasons vs Rationalization Private games vs competitive games "The more afraid a person is of formal competition, the more he tends to have private games." You can fix all the odds in a private game Shep has his own private games like trying to ride the elevator non-stop to his floor at WOR, getting to H & H in time to get a celery and shrimp sandwich before they run out. He also does a lot of crossword puzzles and play a game when flying. He reads the paper during the flight, but saves the crossword until the end. When they announce for everyone to fasten their seatbelts for landing he begins and trys to complete it before the plave comes to a stop.
