Poker Problem

I have to admit I have a problem. I seem to always even out in poker. I play about twice a month and sometimes squeeze in an extra game every season. It's a $20/event habit. 4 hours of fun, I pay less then it would cost to employ a McDonald's food server. It is truly starting to get out of control.

I thought about what I should do to remedy the problem. Here is the list of what I have come up with:

- Find new friends.
- Demononize Gambling.
- Take less chances.
- Form a prayer group.
- By UNO cards only.

I won my second consecutive pot. I even split it with 2nd place. Could have been $100 bucks richer, but I wanted to go home. Seems like the cards were playing my way both nights. However, for awhile it looked like I was not going to win either game until players started dropping off.

The thing I like about poker is that for less than it costs to go out properly. I can converse with like minded individuals who all play differently within respects to what cards come before …

A good kiss. Once elusive to me. Once something I was anxious about. Has treated me with a dose of courage. Courage that I have felt before, but different somehow. All of a sudden women as a whole seem closer, more meaningful, more necessity. Like I had a pair of rose colored glasses on my forehead and they just now slid down over my eyes. "That's where they were!" as if I forgot where I left them. They were on my mind the whole time.

Hard to explain. I equate it to sky diving. You want to do it, but you don't want to die. When your in the plane, you know your going to do it, but you don't want to die. Then when you climb out and do it, you think.... wow I'm higher than I ever thought I would be... This feels great. I need to do this again and again. Maybe I'll do a flip next time. But never in your mind does it enter your mind that "I'm going to die". Quite the opposite, you feel more alive than when you started.
