Poker? I Hardly Know Her
What a month February has been. I got some sort of flu and was laid out for almost a week. Still catching up.
The good news is that during my down time, the Husband taught me how to play poker. Texas Hold 'Em, to be exact.
I think he's created a monster.
Unlike in my work and personal life (in which I'm extremely conservative and risk-averse), I'm apparently a high-risk, live-on-the-edge poker player.
I bet on every hand. I never fold. I throw those chips into the pool like they're candies.
I get all excited, even when I have nothing valuable in my hand. I raise the bet all of the time.
As a result, my opponents get really confused. They think I couldn't be so foolish to bluff on certain hands, and as a result, I keep them on their toes.
Yeah, sure I still lost over and over again.
But at least it happened quickly and painlessly!

We watched the Super Bowl last night.
I've never been that excited about football - for me, it's a chance to hang out with friends and eat and drink a lot.
And after his beloved New York Jets lost a couple of weeks ago, the Husband lost interest in this year's outcome.
But we had fun at the party we went to. Especially our friend who is a huge Green Bay Packers fan.
This guy is so into the Packers, he had a Packers-themed wedding. The bridesmaids wore gold and green, and the tables were numbered after the jersey numbers of famous Packers. Th e wedding cake was decorated in Packers colors, and the bride and groom danced to Packers fight songs.
"Yeah," his wife told me. "I can pretty much have whatever I want for the rest of my life because I let him do this."#
