Rack 'Em Up, Honey

Friday evening I am going to be a ball breaker...

I'm gonna do my best to beat the pants off him in a few games of billiards... or pool... or whatever you want to call it. Neither of us is very good... or he tells me he isn't. I know I'm not. I can make the odd good shot but have no consistency... which is the way it is when you play once or twice a year.

Is he telling me the truth? Or is it just a ploy to lull me into a false sense of security? We'll see....

My plan of attack includes large quantities of alcohol, a low cut neckline, and lots of bending over the table while facing him. Perhaps I can get him flustered enough to make him lose... I have a feeling, however, that beating the pants off him will have to take place outside the pool hall... er, I mean, at home.

There will be a taxicab involved as well, as driving may be inappropriate after all that ball and stick handling....

  1. That sounds like an excellent night out...

    I hate to admit that the last time I played pool was with my nine-year-old, and I beat her but only just barely!!!

  2. Easy. At every opportunity, call him "Shorty!"

    Nice shot, Shorty.
    Too bad about the break, Shorty.
    Oh. Eight ball. You lose Shorty.

  4. Sounds like a plan! Good luck!

  5. The man hasn't a chance in hell of winning against feminine pulchritude.

    Need a rack boy? I promise not to stare.

  6. Leah: Kids are usually good at any game... Next time you probably won't. ;-)

    XL: Um, considering I think I am about a hair taller than him already, I don't think I'll call him 'Shorty'... I'll have to think of something else. :-)

    Jonas: It's a game plan... who knows if it will work! I just plan on having fun... thanks!

    Charlie: Such an ugly sounding word for a nice meaning...

    Staring is okay, but if you drool you're outta there! ;-)

  7. Heh-Heh. She said rack. Heh-Heh.

    Pool has a cool, dark downtown panache. Bowling, on the other hand, isn't cool at all.

  8. UB: Yeah, pool is 'cool'... Bowling can be a blast too, though. We have glow bowl... it's a hoot!

  9. I think your strategy is totally sound. I would suggest, as occasionally your back may be toward him as you make a shot, a short skirt with a thong underneath. He will be completely hustled and out maneuvered.

    I think your readers will want a follow-up post with the score. My money's on you.

  10. Robert: Um... miniskirt and thong not such a good look on a 50-something woman... so I'll stick with my lowrise tight jeans, thanks!

    I'll definitely do a follow up post... and may the best girl win. Oh.. did I say that out loud? Ha!

  11. ATTACK!
    Poor sod, he's lost.

    ... lucky basted ...


So you have something to say about all this, do you?
Well, let's hear it, then!
