I had to take the day off yesterday because I was so mentally exhausted from that beating I took the day before. It doesn't happen that often, but sometimes, a session is so mentally taxing (more likely for a super-long session) that it becomes physically taxing. It's just better to lose 6 huge pots in a row, than to just get clubbed repeatedly for 8 hours. Actually, I played a 12 hour session, but the savage beating occurred the last 8 of those hours. Bullet to the head >>> rubbing yourself in blood and swimming in the shark tank. Wow. What is wrong with me today?!?
WHAT'S FOR DINNER?
At least Mrs. Fly made me a nice romantic dinner. When you have kids, your life is basically over. You pretty much spend most of your day either taking care of the kids or making money for the kids. So it's nice once in a while to spend some alone time with your significant other. We put the kids to sleep and Mrs. Fly made this great meal for the two of us. That shrimp was really outstanding - probably one of the best shrimp dishes I've had. Super jumbo shrimp with a light batter and tangy Asian caramel sauce. The chicken chop-suey-like thing was the shrimp's ugly sibling. Actually, it was decent - but Mrs. Fly used chicken breast(!!!) and it tasted a little dry. It has some potential, but the flavors didn't blend too well together. But I like tasting all of Mrs. Fly's creations. And any meal you can eat in peace and quiet with your significant other is enjoyable.
Not sure why we don't do it more often. By "it" I mean having dinner just the two of us - not the "it" that all you pervs are thinking about. Pervs! But now that I think about it tho...
But I digress. We usually spend time together most nights - lately it been watching an episode of some random soap opera or TV show or watching a movie after we put the kids to sleep. But we don't have that many quiet dinners together. I recently changed my poker routine (later post), so I think we'll try and squeeze in more matinee movies and late night dinners.
BTW, I'm just kidding about having kids - I love my boys!
