On the weekends, I like to relax and forget all about work. I work long hours at a warehouse during the weekday, and there is a lot of heaving lifting and back breaking work. The pay is alright, but it could be much better for what we’re doing. One of my favorite ways to unwind is by playing some online poker on the betting web sites. There’s something about looking at the cards all day that puts me at ease and helps take my mind off of the labor that I’ll have to do once the weekend is over and Monday comes around.
Sometimes when I’m playing poker online, I feel like I’m sitting at a table in an actual casino. The only thing that would make the experience more complete is if I dressed up in a tuxedo and had a martini in my hand. Just like in a real life poker game, the online players are no push over. They bring their best skills to the table and are playing for money just like I am, so they don’t aim to lose. I’ve lost to opponents before, and although it doesn’t feel good, I don’t let it stop me from having fun.
A lot of time can pass when I’m playing poker without me realizing it. This past weekend, I was playing for hours and when I looked out the window, it was close to evening time. I ordered a pizza because I was too lazy to cook that day, and while I was waiting for the delivery guy to come, I continued to play poker. The countdown to the next weekend is a long one, and it feels like every day is twice as long because of the work that I’m doing, but once the weekend arrives, the time really flies by in an instant.
