pick up sticks
i’m sure i’m dating myself with the reference to the childhood game of pick up sticks. but i was pretty good, and so i have good memories of the game. i can already see my strategy here. i think i can lift that top one off without moving any of the others, then i can use the top stick to lift the one that is crossing right underneath it. and then it’s just a matter of patience and a steady hand. if you’re playing against me, don’t get your hopes up that you’ll ever get your turn.
