I went all in and won *

So today after my brothers opened all our presents from Santa my parents announced there was one last present. I was sure it was going to be the "Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle" I've been asking for. But I was wrong. My dad said only one of me or my brothers was going to get the present this year and we would rotate it for the next two years. Hmm, a lot of interesting thoughts running through my mind... (none of which actually had anything to do with it, they were more along the lines of "did I leave the iron on?", and "I wonder how my ass looks in these pants") After a lot of fake "no, you take it this year", "nah, you can have it", we decided to play one hand of poker, all in, winner takes the gift. We delt the hand and your's truly came up the winner. My dad went and got an envelope and handed it to me. And as I open it up I read "Father-Son golf tournament in Southwest Ireland." So, the first week of May I'll be hacking up the best golf courses in Ireland! Haha!!! yeah! suckers!

Alekx said...

Can I be your new very best friend and go with you. I won't say much. I won't even bother you while you are golfing. I'm sure I can keep myself occupied.
REally I can.

The Pink Kitty said...

*ahem* Did you know that Pink Kitties make very stylish golfing companions? They can also very adequately carry golf-clubs while keeping a demure smile. It's a little known fact but they've been known to bring good luck as well (mainly due to distracting the other players). And for the ass-man in you, they can engage in conversations about asses for any length of time that you wish. :astly, if you take this Pink Kitty to Ireland with you, she'll come ready to tour the Guiness factory and drink with you. And, if she reaches the right level of drunkness, she will do her best to sing Irish drinking songs and dance a jig (maybe not sing but how 'bout Riverdance?)
whaddya say? I'll watch MJW while you're out golfing!
