This post is partly due to the fact I have some major writers block and due to the fact that I have unleashed my competitive side. I have never really been competitive about anything. Winning was never important to me. That’s not to say I never won at anything, I just didn’t care one way or the other. I guess I just never had that ONE thing that brought it out of me. Until now!!!
For the last four Fridays we have gotten together 5-6 of us to play poker. I usually just watched and sometimes I’d deal, but never had the itch to play. One night I decide to play a hand and then it happened. My heart started pounding as hard as it possibly could without jumping right out of my chest!! I had a hand, a good one, and I knew it!! I was so nervous, I was sitting here with fairly experienced poker players. (Experienced as any joe blow that plays poker every Friday night) As far as they knew I didn’t know a good hand from a hole in the wall. Little did they know I’ve been watching the Poker Tournament on TV. So I bet…wait…bet…wait…and I did it!!! I won.
I can’t even tell you the feeling I had and have every time I win just a hand. It’s amazing!! I beat out all the guys and it was down to me and my brother, the biggest bluffer of them all. I took him out!!! Foolish, foolish boys think they can bluff me!!! I’m addicted to it now. I watch it on TV, Jason and I play almost every night just for fun. Oh and I beat him almost every time!!!! Who knew it? I’m a pretty good poker player!!! Now I play to win, sure have fun, but WIN!!! It’s the one thing I look forward to each week. It’s probably a good thing I’m not a millionaire and it’s probably a good thing I don’t live near a casino. I can see this being a big problem. I’ll stick to my weekly $5 games for now. Jason is looking at poker schedules at Mystic Lake Casino, it’s kinda expensive to buy in, $150, but Mondays are free buy ins and that could be very dangerous!!!!!
So what is your obsession or guilty pleasure? I know we had this as a Question of the Day but is there that one thing that brings out the competitive side of you? Mine has been unleashed so watch out….MWAHAHAHA!!!!!!
