View Full Version : You Know You're an Addict when.......

You come home from a 12 hr day on Friday night, and there is a message on your answering machine from a lovely person who would like to take you to dinner, you call back and say I am so tired, I think I'll hit a few racks of balls and go tobed, thanks for the offer, maybe tomorrow? Then you pour a drink, rack up, and discover 5 hours later you are still running drills........Is this dedication, addiction, or just plain pathetic? Patti I

No, just smart, because as long as your stroke is right, balls balls won't argue with you, or expect any at the end of the night.

Keep hittin' those balls, girlfriend...

Hi Patti,

You've got it bad girl. Did you recently quit smoking?

Wish I could say I had, actually, just got the name of a hypnotist for that- maybe he could help with my pool addiction, too?

Funny, I seem to do the same thing about once a week....the balls never say, "C'mon, just one more drink..." LOL

When you carry over 2 thousand just in case a game you can't refuse comes up. But you haven't played for more than a $100 set in a long time. I never like to be short.

Good morning:

You spend 7 hours doing drills at one billiard room and then travel to another, 60 miles away, and shoot pool with your practice partner "Lorri" (do not want to be berated, again, for failing to acknowledge her) for another 5 hours.

Yes, I did sleep well Saturday night!
