Pool Skewed

I have had some professional and personal turmoil in my life for a while. It has recently been compounded by some very personal turmoil. No, I'm not dying... Far as I know.
I know my mother hates when I complain about my birthday, but I know I have a birthday curse and I dare anyone to try to disprove it. My birthday is three weeks from yesterday, and if I could hide in a dark cave I would. That is not what this is about, however. This is a Mi Tejas post.
Yesterday I awoke early, puttered around the house, went to work for a couple hours, then headed for the pub. None of the regulars were there, so after sharing some fried pickles with Kat the barmaid I wandered across the street to Buffalo Billiards.

BB's is a HUGE pool hall/bar/live music venue/God knows what else. Sunday at lunchtime it was deserted. I got a rack of balls and a Shiner Bock and punched the cueball around the table for a while. I got a table close enough to the front window I could people watch.
That may sound boring to some, and I suppose it is, but that is part of Mi Tejas.

Side note: My pool game reeks. I used to be pretty good, but I suck now. As if I wasn't down enough already.

I have bad birthday karma, too, and mine falls about a week before yours. You have my sympathy!

It's terrible. Everyone tries to cheer you up, tell you this year is different, but it rarely is.

You thrive on being miserable. You pull the black shades yourself. Quite yer whinin. You are never so miserable as when you are happy.........
