A good of friend of mine just went through a long and nasty divorce...other day, immediately after meeting with his lawyer to finalize all the paperwork, he came by my place. He asked me to go with him to a casino. He tells me how stressed out he has been (of which I already know cuz he reminds me about it all the time) and that gambling helps him to relax, to get his mind off of things.
I didnt want to go anywhere. I had been sitting in traffic all day. Last thing I wanted to do was jump back into a car to go sit for hours in a casino. I was not in the mood to gamble, nor did I have 'gambling money' in my budget. He insisted and urged. I still didn't want to go. He kept at it, was persistent, nagging on and on. Its like that fly buzzing in the room while youre trying to sleep. At first its annoying, but you tell yourself its no big deal. After awhile, you just want to slam it with a sledgehammer to shut it up.
I said, "Fine! Lets fu@kin go! Just shut up already!" He laughs, passes me a joint, and tells me how easy it is to persuade me.
We get there, he gives me $100 to sit and play poker with him. We sit at a $3/6 Limit Holdem table. No more than 30 minutes goes by when we both got lucky. After the flop, everyone at the table folds except for me and my friend. The cards are shown...I've a full-house...he's got 4 Aces! Jackpot for $15000!
$9000 for me (the losing hand gets 1st prize, weird rule)
$3000 for the recently divorced
$3000 split amongst the 7 other players at the table
Afterwards, I gave him $3000 so that each had $6000. I figured, if it wasn't for his nagging and pulling me to the casino with him, I would've missed LadyLuck.
