Tonight I Went Out For The First Time
Saturday, May 20, 2006
I decided to try and venture out of the house for the evening for the first time since my surgery. There was a poker tournament at a friend of a friend's house. I don't like to miss this tournament because the competition is ususally pathetic. It was the usual round of pathetic players, but I was pullilng shitty cards all night and ended up short stacked and losing to a guy who beat my top pair with his kicker. I actually didn't mind because the drugs were getting me a little weary and I was tired of thinking about cards, especially against a group of people make it not matter what you think. I also got tired of watching people try to figure out how to count out their $125 bet with 4 different color chips. 1 green, 2 rd, 3 blue and no wait....2 blue 4 red and the game last forever. I was happy to see my friends.

I did make the mistake, however, of trying to run across the street to avoid traffic....and it turns out I'm not ready to run yet. My stomach made sure I knew that when I got to the other side. For those of you who need to turns out it really hurts to run 12 days after a kidney transplant. You think I would have known that. I'm sure they told me at the hospital.

    Other things you might wish to avoid:

    Wendy's Chili

    I know, Wendy's Chili is on there twice... Trust me on this one.
