If you’re hanging out here, chances are you’re not at that conference that shall not be named. Clearly, I’m not either.
And this week I’m really antsy. I haven’t been on my Thursday drive for weeks because the kids are out of school. Oh, and because of this:
So lately, there’s been none of this:
and none of these:
And I’m getting cranky.
At least I have poker to entertain me.
One of the funniest moments of my week was in the middle of a poker tournament at the casino on Sunday. When I play, I like it best when the players are talking and having a good time. Of course, during a hand, it’s good etiquette to keep quiet for the most part. But there’s plenty of opportunity to enjoy being around other grown-ups, and I’ve been known to lighten the mood of a table. (It’s my mission, and I do choose to accept it.)
The poker room has about 8 or 10 big screen TVs. In one corner, there’s a smaller screen just over a larger one. Most of the screens were showing the Diamondbacks game, but that one small screen was showing the movie Bandidas. I happen to love that movie–it’s a fun caper movie, and how hard is it to look at Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek for an hour and a half? (They’re both girl crush-worthy.) It’s not the greatest movie ever, but it’s fun.
Though most of the attention was on the baseball game, the presence of two beautiful women on the screen didn’t go unnoticed. The corsets and the décolletage were noted and appreciated fully, and the consensus among the men (I might have stirred the pot a little) was that it wouldn’t be so bad if women dressed like that these days.
The game went on, and so did the movie, until it reached the scene I’m posting below. Having watched the movie before, I knew what to expect.
At the critical moment, I said, “Finally, a naked butt!”
In half a second, nine heads swiveled toward the screen just in time to see Steve Zahn’s bare tush. And then? Nine men protested. Loudly. The table erupted in laughter.
“Oh, geez. Did we have to see that?”
“Hey! You just had to do that, didn’t you?”
“Oh come on.”
And then, “All right. You got us.”
I laughed the hardest. Those poor men were expecting to see a very fine, very female tush. It was mean. It was hilarious.
And all I could say (to more laughter) was, “Well played, Jennifer. Well played.”
The clip is probably PG-13, so you might want to clear out the young ‘uns when you watch it. And, gentlemen, if you’re as easily ruffled as the men at the table, you should take a long blink around timestamp 0:25 to 0:27 . But don’t worry–with the rest of it, I’ve got you covered. 😉 (Oh, and don’t judge me for posting this. Tomorrow we’ll pretend like it never, ever happened.)
