ancient chinese tangram, huh?

On the night flight back from Minneapolis I thought I'd use tangrams to show my cultural sensitivity and bridge the language gap between me and the Asian businessman sitting next to me, but no sooner did I break out my Tangoes for two than he folded his magazine on the empty seat between us and fell asleep. When the stewardess brought my third or fourth scotch I gave her the cardboard sleeve the game had come in because she wanted to get her kid "something educational" for Christmas.
