The Conversation Went Something Like This…

Me: I'm going downtown to play poker tonight.

Her: Wow, really? But there's no casinos in this city or anything, right?

Me: Well, no, there's no casinos, it's just a bunch of people playing. You know that movie Rounders?

Her: Seedy, smoke-filled back rooms?

Me: We're a bunch of geeks playing poker in a comic book shop. It's quite well lit and they don't allow smoking. John Malkovich won't be there. It's pretty much the anti-Rounders. I guess that wasn't the most apt comparison.

Footnote: came in third again. Won $80 less the $20 buy-in. Go me.
