A husband’s plea to open an online gambling account…

Husband: [Holding canbet.com brochures with a ridiculous but apparently effective picture of a skinny chick in football sholder pads and a skimpy little jersey] Hey, I think I’m going to open a canbet.com account.

Me: What?! Are you crazy?!

Husband: I’m really good at winning football pools in the office.

Me: There’s no risk of you draining our life savings in office pools.

Husband: Canbet is powered by Sun and uses Java.

Me: OK, fine, but only $100 and I get half the winnings.

Husband: [Skips over to the computer like a boy on the town when he’s in love.]

[A few minutes pass.]

Me: Did you open your account?

Husband: Yes, but I opened a $200 account because it was more value for the dollar.

Me: [Shakes head. Sighs loudly. Rolls eyes. Begins forming asset protection plans.]

    I had the same conversation with mine about 6 months ago. I said pick either his weekly poker night or online poker, not both (knowing there was no way he’d give up poker night). I won. 😉

    Now the real fun will be asking him for his password. Don’t ask now, ask in a few months after some dollars have moved in and out. Record his reaction with your Treo for more great blogging!
