Whoa Whoa, hold on, now..... - There was none of that..... I have to tell you.
I had set up everything. Got the kids scheduled.... Their Warrior big sister came and took Hannah and Kayla (my 14 year olds) - I still had Jaidan... So last nitie, I thoght I had it done.... Had a babysitter for this morning... I call to tell 'em I'm coming...... message machine... We go there ring the bell?? nothing... not home?? gonna have to figger sumpin else out.. - no worries, best friend is home ans always wants her over. Wooot! situation handled - Now I have an hour and a half to get there.
Sweet. on my way, hit traffic hard - friggin accident has the highway down to one lane - long story sort - I get there with 5 mins remaining and end up an alternate -> Even so - I'm sitting, 20 mins into the game. I sit down and another guy comes along and says he has my chair - I'm like, "No, here is my card, I'm sat. You got an issue, take it to the floor manager. - he gone.... (Man someone does not want me playing today) - so I get sat about round 3 and I'm figuring out the denominations of the chips. - (because they gave me four purple chips. - I came in without any knowledge of starting chips nor payouts - i totally just wanted to play).......
I got about 30 hands in before i finally got half a hand... by then I had some figured out, but this dood at the table got me by pairing up his card on the river - I and he had paired up on jacks, but he hit seven on the rivercard - my next best was q) ending my quest for nothing. but because of the situation, I had fun... I spent time in traffic, adverse circumstances in getting there, didn't get my reserved spot, still got to play.
...and I'm home by 3 on Saturday. time to kick back.
Have a Wonderful Weekend, everyone.
