Winning poker vs a good orgasm?

Monday morning and the usual "So how was your weekend?" queries in the teachers lounge. "I did marking all weekend!" "I was so busy! Marking assignments and working on exams." You get the picture. Then it's my turn...."I did S.F.A. all weekend. I drank, I tried to ride my bike (not at the same time, and the battery was dead anyway), I watched bad TV, and I won $122 on poker."

Silence. One colleague replied something along the lines of how my procrastination will bite me on the ass later (well, duh); and another laughed and stated how I had the same tone of voice and expression as someone who's telling her friends that she had hot wild sex all weekend. (hah! I wish! Hunny Bunny was working all weekend)

So it got me thinking.... is poker as an addiction similar to sex as an addiction? Let's review, shall we?

SEX:

  • when you find a good lover, it's all you can think about. When will I see them again? And how can I manipulate the situation so we can get nekkid?
  • when you find a good lover, it's all you can talk about. You alternately bore and annoy your friends with talk of how utterly fabulous life is (or how badly it sucks as you try to over analyze a weird phonecall)
  • when it's good, it's very, very good! But when it's bad, you end up walking around feeling unfulfilled and jittery, mumbling and grumbling under your breath, wondering "WTF????".
  • The best instances of it culminate with the word "yes Yes YES" shouted at great volume, and end with that small, secret smile at the end of the day as you wiggle under the covers and get ready for happy blissful slumber.


POKER:

  • when you find a good game, it's all you can think about. When will I see those fish..errr...players again? And how can I manipulate the situation so I can take all their chips?
  • when you find a good game, it's all you can talk about. You alternately bore and annoy your friends with talk of how utterly fabulous the game is (or how badly it sucks as you try to over analyze a bad beat)
  • when it's good, it's very, very good! But when it's bad, you end up walking around feeling unfulfilled and jittery, mumbling and grumbling under your breath, wondering "WTF????".
  • The best instances of it culminate with the word "yes Yes YES" shouted at great volume, and end with that small, secret smile at the end of the day as you wiggle under the covers and get ready for happy blissful slumber.


Nah, no similarities at all *grin.
