Poker Bitch

“Old card players never die, they just shuffle away.” - Unknown

I love to play poker. Pretty much suck at it, though. In fact, I recently hosted a poker party where I taught everyone how to play but ended up the Big Loser – down $7 when we only bought $5 worth of chips. Don’t ask. It was better than taking my clothes off. My chances of getting a Royal Flush were better in the bathroom than at that poker table.

I actually used to have Bathroom Poker Parties. Everyone would come in “powder room” attire: PJs, face cream, hair rollers, etc. I would fill the bathtub up with ice for the beer, and use one of those room wraps to create a casino. While playing cards we would turn on the bathroom fan and smoke cigars. Well, TRY to smoke cigars. We usually couldn’t keep them lit so we did other obnoxious things with them. (Sometimes a cigar isn’t just a cigar.)

One time I was out of town visiting some friends and we decided to have a girls’ poker night so I ran to the store to pick up some cards. About the third hand my friend had a pair of aces –aces of spades. Turned out I had bought pinochle cards instead of poker cards. Who knew? We played on, though. Didn’t let a little thing like cards screw up our poker game.

I HIGHLY advise a girlfriends’ get together for poker! Even if you don’t know how to play, you can look up the rules for great variations of poker like Follow the Bitch, Guts, Roll Your Own, and Crazy Pineapple.
