“I don't lie about a winter temperature I've seen on the thermometer outside my bedroom window, when I report it at the office later in the morning. But if it is a very low reading, I don't announce it right away either. I wait for others to report the reading on their thermometers. Then, if the reports are higher than mine, I weigh my timing carefully, and at what I consider to be an appropriate moment, play my own reading....
A brief but satisfying victory is mine if there follows nothing but some wows, no-kiddings, and is-that-rights. Often, however, someone will have waited even longer to play an even lower temperature. The victory is then his or hers.”
