I love reading about the games Jaz Parks Granny May puts together. So anyway, now I'm going to tell you about my imaginary Texas Hold 'em game.
Starring: Marilyn Monroe
Legolas Greenleaf (Orlando Bloom)
Hugh Jackman (as Wolverine) and
Richard Dean Anderson
I'm a big Marilyn fan, so I know why she's there, not so much Legolas or Wolverine. I just plain love Richard Dean Anderson (RDA). Marilyn's first dealer, she shuffles the cards while flashing the guys a sultry smile. None of them stir. It's a tough crowd tonight. She deals out the cards and it's RDA to her left so he begins the bets. He slowly lifts his cards to take a peek then puts in 3 chips. Legolas is next, he doesn't even look at his cards and puts his 3 chips in. Wolverine has been watching all three closely. He stares hard at RDA, chewing on a cigar, then puts his chips in. So far, no-one has uttered a word. Marilyn has been looking from her cards to Legolas who sits directly across from her. There's a small sparkle in her eyes. She also adds her chips, burns the first card on the pile, then lays three others face up. A queen, a jack and a ten. Wolverine inhales on his cigar and blows smoke all over the table.
"What's it gonna be, Rick?" he asks.
"Well, I'm thinking maybe four," he adds 4 chips to the pile. RDA has a pretty good hand.
Legolas calmly places the required four chips in the center. Wolverine blows more smoke and puts his chips in.
"I see your four, and raise you two." Marilyn says. RDA and Wolverine stare at her. She just smiles. Legolas smiles back and inclines his head to her.
"Okay then. I see your two." RDA adds two more chips to the pile. Legolas still hasn't looked at his cards, but puts more chips in. They're all looking at Wolverine now. He looks from his cards to the ones on the table, but places his chips in. Again Marilyn burns the top card and places the next one on the table. An ace.
"Mr. Anderson, it's your bet." Marilyn says to him.
He adds another 3 chips to the pile. Legolas and Wolverine add the required amount. After a minute, so does Marilyn. Burns again, then places the final card on the table. A three..
"Last chips in gentlemen."
RDA immediately throws in two chips. The others follow. RDA tosses his cards on the table. "Three queens."
Legolas finally turns his cards. "A two and a ten."
Wolverine curses under his breath. "A four and a ten. Looks like you win Rick." Wolverine begins to shove the chips towards RDA.
"Not so fast gentlemen. I have a King and an ace. All in hearts. I do believe that means I have a Royal Flush."
RDA sits back and smiles, takes a sip of his scotch. "You had me going there."
"Well done, Miss. Monroe."
"I'm gonna find another table." With that Wolverine get's up and walks away. Then everything fades to black.
