A Poker game with Kirk.

Standard

(A long time ago, there was a online journal-y website called Inknoise. I had a blog there. It was called ‘blaug’. Here is a favourite from that site from January 1, 2006. This is a classic-in-lieu-of-new entry for a frightfully busy day, courtesy of The Wayback Machine.)

Kirk, it’s your turn. You can either call or raise.
You know what? We need to start a Euchre night again. It’s so much easier to play when you’re stoned.

Kirk, it’s your turn. You can either call or raise or fold.
Man, did I ever tell you about the time I had to move a dead dolphin out of the water? Man, that was crazy.

Kirk, it’s your turn. You can either call or raise.
What is it?
Fifteen to call
Oh, man, one time when I went on a delivery run with a friend of mine up in (Kirk’s home town). He told me I had to go because there was this completely inbred family that I had to meet. There was dried dog shit all over the carpet and they wanted us to take our shoes off before we got in the house! Fuckin’ right, no way.

Kirk, it’s your turn. You can either call, raise, or fold.
What is it? Thirty?
Yes.
Man, this friend of mine knew this guy who went to jail for sleeping with his sister. And it wasn’t rape or anything. It was consensual.

Kirk, it’s your turn. You can either call, raise, or fold.
Wait, M, you were born in 1982? That was the first year I got stoned!

Kirk, it’s your turn. You can either call or raise.
That dolphin thing was weird. Some people thought it was a whale. I mean, I’d never seen a dead dolphin before either, but it looked like a dolphin, y’know?

Kirk, it’s your turn. You can either call, raise, or fold.
Man, we really should start playing Euchre again. It’s so much easier to play when you’re stoned.

(Ed. note: Since then, we have established a weekly Euchre game, of which Kirk is no better at keeping track.)
