Betty generously offered to cash our office piggy bank on Friday. Grand total: $8.81. After debating over what to do with these shared funds we decided to cure our Friday afternoon blues by playing some poker and the winner would get the money. Maybe I did catch the gambling bug while in Vegas, but it's probably just seasonal allergies. Whatever the case, I was feeling particularly lucky.
I don't think Betty and Sam will be playing poker with me again any time soon. Well that's too bad because I thoroughly enjoyed winning. It's nice, you should try it sometime.
So here's the deal. They should be glad I won because it was a communal piggy bank and as such I feel some obligation to share. It could make for some very interesting blog experiments. After much deliberation here's the compromise/ultimatum:
If Sam Slackheap ever gets his act together, I will donate the money to "Sam's Sips." He has until the end of this Friday to post on the blog, otherwise Betty and I will buy us something nice on Saturday at the flea market. Now as long as he posts something, I'll let him come up with his own experiment using the money. The only stipulation is that the bill can't go over $8.81 and must include tip. I think that's fair, don't you?
