A while back, I went to a friend’s for dinner and I learned the ins and outs of Texas Hold ‘Em. (Don’t ask me now how to play – I don’t remember a thing.)
But I did manage to stay in the game for quite a while before I lost everything. Fortunately, though we all put a couple of bucks into the pot at the beginning, I lost little more than the cost of a lottery ticket. But I had a good time with my friends and though I won’t be in a hurry to play again (because I will have to learn from scratch how to play), if I was invited, I’d do it. And maybe I could stick around longer before having to pack it in.
