I get anxiety before every event. Too much worry that I might get voted off. I hope these Donkey Island guys know that they're supposed to be nice to me. Ugh.
I'm heading to my mom's house shortly for pasta and guilt. :) Oh and plenty of talking too. Have I mentioned that my mother loves The Game Show network? Family Feud, Baggage, The Newlywed Game are some of her faves. Since I visit her on Sundays, chat always turns to her least fave part of The Game Show Network.
Mom: "Oh it's Sunday night. That darn poker takes over all my shows. You like watching that poker don't you?"
Me: "Ma, it's good. You should watch poker on GSN. It's interesting."
Mom: "Are you crazy? Those guys betting all those chips. That's so boring. Where do they get all that money anyway? I can't watch my shows because of that ___________ poker. Are you gonna watch it?"
Me: "Probably. It's interesting."
Mom: "You know that girl Annie Duke? Now she's a nice girl. She's on 1 vs 100 because she's so smart. Madonna mia, that girl never gets a questions wrong. Smart girl. and pretty too. She reminds me of you. She plays the poker just because she's smart. Is she married? What a nice girl."
Me: "Well she was married but she's divorced now. Hey, you know she has 4 kids?"
Mom: "Does she get paid for being on 1 vs 100?"
Me: "Um, I dunno, but it can't be much."
Mom: "She's rich from poker. You know how I know? Because she's not on that ______ poker show on Sunday night. She's on 1 vs. 100! What a smart girl."
Hopefully another smart girl makes it through tonight.
Play smart, like Annie Duke and you too can wind up on 1 vs. 100.
