So, the pork ribs are ready. Enjoy your meal and watch you favorite films.  By the way do you know the meaninng of the phrase “house of cards”? It typically refers to a precarious or unstable situation or structure that is likely to collapse or fall apart easily. It often implies that the foundation or basis of something is weak or fragile, and any disturbance or disruption could cause it to crumble. The term is derived from the practice of building a structure with playing cards, which requires careful balance and stability. If one card is disturbed or removed, the entire structure can come crashing down. In a broader sense, “house of cards” can also be used metaphorically to describe any complex system or arrangement that is vulnerable to failure or collapse.
