My kids have given a new meaning to ass, or donkey as we call them in poker. A mum that plays online poker. I am forever being acused of being lazy by them. Sure; they like the money that it brings, they also like to brag about me being on radio and in magazines. At he same time as having these “likes” they sure do play against my job!
The children have adapted to having a mum that plays poker, I am not saying they havnt for a second. What they do not comprehend is their mum sitting in their home on a PC 12 hours a day (usually less but we will use 12 hours as a base). I ask them to do chores and find replies such as “Why should we, you have been sitting on your ass all day playing poker”. It makes me want to slap their cheeky mouths, it tilts me more then anything.
So, I have been thinking that an ass or a donkey in my kids eyes equates to someone who plays online poker in the comfort of their own home all day. “Hello to all the other asses out there lol”.
So, what to do? I have recently contemplated renting a small office. It sounds bizarre but will put real meaning to “Mum has worked all day long”. They will see me get dressed, go to work and come home again. I have also considered going and using my mums home office all day, just to “get out of the house” so i am not sitting on my “ass” playing poker all day.
I am sure that if I was working the hours I used to being up to 16 per day, sometimes 70 a week and also on call; they would believe that I was actually working. Right now; they don’t. I have no other further challenges with my children in respect to being criminal like etc. Just this! When I work out what to do, I will let all the other mums know exactly how to handle this issue. I could ask Annie Duke I guess at some stage, but Annie of course plays live as much as online I guess. I am again; an online player, or foremost an online player.
I am going to start in the morning by trying something new. I am going to get up, put a whole ton of makeup on and get dressed in 1 of my many feltstars outfits as I whisk them out the door to school. I will get them home and ask them to do their chores while I “finish work” and see how that goes. If it doesn’t work I think I will next try the “you get nothing of value trick as playing poker makes me an ass” theory lol. If this doesn’t work I think it is get a HAC (Hot Aussie Chick) office away from the house.
That’s all for now personal blog! Wish this little ass luck in becoming a child eating shark
