Poker Takes the Pain Away

My break up with my ex-girlfriend was tough, and the only thing that really helped me get through it was playing poker on the betting web sites. I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep, but at least I could make a bet or two. Every moment of the day was filled with misery because I would always think about my ex telling me that she wanted to break up with me. I was going over what I might have done wrong in my head, but that was just causing me more grief. When things were at their worst, I got online and played a few rounds of poker to help me forget.

As time passed, I began to regain my appetite and could sleep as well as I could before the break up. I wasn’t at 100% yet, but I was on the rebound quickly. Each game of poker was like a therapy session for me, and each win was like a satisfying moment on the couch. I’m not sure if it was because each win was a rush, or was I just getting joy from beating my opponents so easily, as if I were punch on a punching bag. Either way, I was liking it because it was my road to recovery from the emotional pain I experienced.

Time heals all wounds, and so does online poker, because now I don’t feel the same pain that I felt when my ex first broke up with me. There’s plenty of people on this planet, so I can always find someone else to have the same happy experiences that I did with my ex. In the meantime, I can keep on playing poker and earning money from the bets that I make. Perhaps I’ll find someone who will be willing to play poker with me.

The easiest part was picking out the funeral home, the person to do my eulogy, the coffin, the preacher, and the cemetery where I will eventually be buried. It seems that would be all, but picking out the headstone was actually difficult for me. I finally found a company that makes Jewish headstones in NJ, and that made this difficult process a whole lot easier for me.

I did not want just any tombstone company creating my headstone. Continue reading
