Worst Episode Ever

**I had a good picture of The Comic Book Guy, but can't seem to get it to work**
This week has been ungood. Bear with my improper writing please...I can't think right now. Yesterday, I awoke with a serious head cold. I had spent the whole weekend working my ars off painting the house, moving furniture, and just doing stuff around the house to get ready for our upcoming baby in April. I just wonder if something along the way left me vulnerable for getting sick. Also last Wednesday, a guy at our local cash game said he had been sick and wanted to know if anyone else wanted what he had. We all said thanks, but no thanks and moved on. A few days later my buddy who runs the game was sick. I also work with him and the funk has been making it's way through our office as well, so I'm betting that's where I got it.
Either way, yesterday was brutal. I went through a box of tissues within 8 hours. By the time I got home, I was ready for bed. I barely made it to 7pm, and then the Nyquil kicked in. I was in La La Land by 7:15pm. I didn't wake up till 7am today, but still had the funk going, though to a lesser degree. I can't believe I'm actually writing this since I'm ready to pass out again. But I wanted to make an entry in case in readers where looking for an entry. If you're thinking being sick can't make for a Worst Episode Ever, allow me to continue. I had planned on taking yesterday off, regardless of being sick, in order to finish the things around the house I mentioned above. However, around 7:30am (Tuesday) I got a call from my boss noting that my partner in crime - the lady I directly work with - had just called to inform him that she was going on Short Term Disability for the next 4 - 6 weeks. After taking it all in and hoping everything was o.k. with her, I then went into "oh shit" mode realizing that the next 4-6 weeks, I'd be working for two. Again, ungood. After 2 work days, this has now sunk in that I'm gonna have a tough month or so. Nothing I can't handle though.
As for poker content in this post, I'll have to limit it to writing this. I've cancelled my plans to deal tonight which I normally do. I need the money, but not so bad that I'll do it while feeling like ass. It's better off too in that my head wouldn't be in the game, plus nobody wants what I've got. I'm hoping that I'm feeling better by tomorrow so I can play in the weekly tournament I've been in recently at a local brew pub. I've placed 3rd and 4th in the last two weeks and would hate to miss out on the chance to pick up some more points. The winner of it all gets a seat at a satellite to go to the WSOP. Not ungood.
O.K., I just had to leave for a seems my sickness has decided to spread from head cold to elsewhere (think arrears). I won't go into details, but let's just say my wife was giving me a mean look - and spraying air freshner - as I left the bathroom. Yep, worst episode ever.
I can't complain too much (more), I guess, after reading Dutch Boyd's most recent post as well as Mean Gene's sickly days (and his bad bad beats). The guy (Dutch) has got troubles after troubles it seems. Whether you think he brings it on himself or not, dude has a lot to deal with these days. I personally have nothing against the guy. I only know what I've read online and what I've seen on ESPN. I was very intrigued by his portrayal in the 2003 WSOP. In fact, his section on chip tricks, coupled with my DVR slow motion option, were the main reason I can now do about 5 chip tricks. Like'em or not, when I start doing chip tricks at the table during a live game, it turns heads and often helps people see that I'm not a newbie at the table. I am sure, especially recently, that I've gotten a few timely bluffs to work because people who did not know me felt like I was a player. I think I might write a post entirely about chip tricks as I enjoy them a lot.
As for Dutch Boyd, if I could ask him one thing, it would be why he continues to put money into poker and other businesses without paying off his debts first. I realize there is the hope that there might be a big payday from either/or, but it would speak volumes if he did less playing poker and more paying off his debts. Again, I have nothing against the guy, and I write this paragraph without sufficient knowledge of what his real deal is, so it's a stretch for me to even make a comment. In the end, as long as he is playing, I wish him luck as I think he clearly a decent player and there is money to be made for him if he keeps playing the big games.
Well I didn't mean for this post to become a rant on Dutch, so I think I will end it now. Time for some Nyquil, and watching Tron with my 4 year old son. That is until the Nyquil kicks in, at which time it will be my son watching Tron with a limp body next to him.
The night time, sniffling, sneezing....
