Things you could do:
Steinbeck presents George and Lennie's friendship as being very difficult for George:
"God a'mighty, if I was alone I could live so easy."'

Clearly, this shows that for George being with Lennie is nothing but trouble; he obviously believes that his life would be better without Lennie around. This is clear from his exclamation 'God a'mighty', which shows how frustrated he is by Lennie's behaviour.
Moreover, this idea is developed later when Steinbeck has George playing
, a game for one, instead of a game he could play with Lennie.
Essentially, the fact that Lennie has to ask '
"why is it both ends [of the cards] the same?"
' tells the reader that George is always going to be lonely even with Lennie there.
