Hannah is the granddaughter of Anna, a resident at the White Birch nursing home. Hannah visits her grandmother as often as she can. But she lives in Michigan and Anna lives in Arizona.
Anna has a sour look on her face for three reasons.
1. She is holding in a smile because she forgot to put in her dentures that morning.
2. She knows she won because that king of diamonds completes her hand of 3 of a kind with an ace high. But she is using her poker face.
3. They are playing strip poker and the man across from her has lost his shirt and is about to lose another hand. Ugh, she thinks.
Hannah is trying to get Anna to laugh for all those reasons because just once she would like to make Anna crack a smile while playing poker. Even though they play once a week and Anna often wins against other residents she takes the game very seriously.
Oh, and one more reason why Anna isn't smiling. Everyone has a nice refreshing drink, but one of the workers gave Anna prune juice today and she hates drinking prune juice.
