Christmas Surprise

Sometimes, when I go to the VFW, I throw a few bucks into the football pool.  Just to join in with the guys.  I hardly ever win the pool.

Yesterday, I won the pool for the second quarter of the Redskins game!

Because the VFW is closed for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, I won't collect until Wednesday at the earliest.

When I do collect, I'm going to give Mrs. AOW the 50 bucks.  I never know what to buy her for Christmas.  This year was worse than most years because, ever since she lost all that weight over the summer, she doesn't even want candy anymore!  Candy used to be my old standby for something to give her.

Of course, Christmas is really about the Best Surprise of all:

Shhhhhhh! You're not supposed to tell the Mrs. about your winnings... else she might also admonish you for your losses!

Whenever I win the pool, I repay the coffee pool for cheating the "homour" system. Cuz as much as I hate to admit it, we all cheat a little bit. And repaying that lien against my honour always makes me feel a little better about myself.

But now, I suppose we all know that. Never mind.
