Well, my brother and his lovely wife came this weekend. It’s always good to see them. Man, but I wish we had more time together. It’s kind of weird how you grow up with someone and you’re so close, in the same house, doing absolutely every activity of your life together and then you’re old and somebody lives in Chicago and somebody lives in Sarajevo and somebody lives in Dallas. That’s weird. Because so much of who we are today is because of who we were back then, raised by the same parents, forever intertwined, even though we’re all separate now. I don’t really like to think about my own kids growing up and separating from us and each other that way. But maybe by that time, I’ll be more ready.
Anyway, I’ll take whatever I can get. And we got a weekend with my brother and sister-in-law, for which I am very grateful.
The highlight of the weekend was that after all this time of being addicted to Texas Hold ’em and playing it every chance we get, I had never seen a straight flush in any of the games I’ve played. I saw my mom once fold what turned out to be a straight flush. But that’s not quite the same thing. Well, last Friday night it happened, my friends. And it couldn’t have happened to a better guy. My brother Josh, not only got a straight flush on the river, it was a ROYAL FLUSH. Yes that’s right, a 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace of Hearts. Unbelievable. And he went all in and Chris called him, which put Chris out. Josh went on to win that game. Good game, Josh.
Maybe we can come see you guys in Chicago next time.
