Defining local Poker....

Through absolutely no skill of my own, I've qualified for a local championship event here in Bedrock. It's a November nine style rip-off thing and with my earlier results, I guess I'll have a pretty good chip lead going into the event.

But it is local Poker and honestly to me, that can only mean one thing.

Peb's Pearls ~ #13....

Hi Gang Peb's here.
Long time no, whatever it is I'm doing right now.

I wanted to share a fun little game that I play all the time with Bam-Bam with you. Well honestly he doesn't really know that we are playing the game but to me, that's what makes it so much fun.

A girls got to make her own fun sometimes right?

So as near as I can recall, we started the game when we'd first met. The game doesn't actually have a name I don't think but for my purposes of laughter, I call it the Cashier game.

The rules of the game are really quite simple.

1) There needs to be an organized shopping list.
2) Your husband needs to do the shopping, while you watch.
3) Sit back and wait for the fun.

See it's easy!

Now we all know that it was uber-easy to play this game, way back in the day. All you had to do was add some form of feminine hygiene product to said list and voila!

But those days are long gone, as the men seem to take a great deal of pride in being "that" kind of guy. You know the one I mean right? The guy that can not only stand in line and purchase the products in public but hey, he'll stand in the longest line at the store because there's a hot check out girl in that one. He'll then proceed to boldly purchase said products with chest puffed out and head held high as if to say, "Look at me. Ya that's right, I'm a provider." Half the time if your paying attention properly at the check out, the chicks like "oooh, coooo, look at you Mr. Provider."

Well let me tell you, that really took all the fun out of the game for me and like I said earlier on, a girls got to make her own fun sometimes. So I decided on different ways to play it and you know what? I think if you put your mind to it too, you could have as much fun as me playing it with your significant others. Hell, maybe you already do? BTW ~ I'd love to hear about that!

My secret seems to be in getting that one special item on a specific list of Bammers. I've gotten him dozens of times with this little trick and let me tell you something, IT NEVER GETS OLD!

Here's the latest example I have that I can sort of actually show you. Now to set the scene properly, Bam was incredibly focused on making his Chipotle Chili. It's always been a Winter staple for us but this year, I had a little fun with it!

Now it might help if you know that Bammer is TOTALLY anal about his cooking AND, his lists for getting it right. Anyone else would probably put a weeks worth of items on the list and then, head out to get some groceries at the store. NOT Bammer! He has a list for his key item and at the store as a second check, he places them all out on the conveyor in order of the recipe.

So picture if you will, all layed out nice and organized;

2 lbs. Ground Beef
1 lb. Ground Pork
3 Spanish Onions
1 Hot Cubanelle Pepper
1 jar Chipotle Seasoning
1 jar Sweet Crushed Chillies & Pepper
1 bottle Liquid Smoke
1 bottle Lea & Perrins
3 Packages of Tex-Mex Chili Seasoning
3 cans crushed and seasoned Tomatoes
3 cans Tomato Paste
3 cans Red Kidney Beans
1 Loaf Fresh Italian bread

and what was it Peb's wanted again?
Oh yeah,

1 bottle Industrial Strength Toilet Bowl Cleaner

After "Nice to see you're planning ahead" from the cashier and most of the customers in line got up off the floor, this version of the game was officially over.

We live by Rule #34....

I guess it's because of my inability to attend this years gathering, but when I was asked recently by a WPBT first timer what I thought the secret to having a good time was going to be, I fluffed off the appropriate answer and mumbled something about 'just have fun.' Well despite not actually making the trip this year, I do know better than that! The secret is and will always be, to make sure you follow Pauly's Invading Las Vegas Tips.

In particular, RULE #34!

Much better clarification of Rules #6,#7 & #8 can be found HERE and honestly for these gatherings, those four are the ones that can make or break the weekend for you. (not to mention for others!)

Have fun kids!
I can't wait to hear all about it.

In other news, did you know our boy Schaubs is battling it out for an award? Well, he is! Best new Blog for multiples. If you get a second, (AND THAT'S REALLY ALL IT TAKES!) it would be hawesome if you could drop a little click in the Double Baby Bump section HERE, under best new Blog. It can't be anything but good Karma to do so and with a trip to Vegas in your plans, who couldn't use a little of that?
