Back when I was 16, I was all into cologne trying to impress the ladies. Halston, Polo, etc.
That did not last long, all that shit just started to make me sneeze and other reactions.
Almost 4 years ago my current girlfriend gave me a bottle of something she likes.
She sometimes bitches now that I have only used that crap 2 times in 4 years, but she has seen how I just start sneezing.
She is pretty awesome, she knows not to wear perfume around me, or I will just sneeze.
(and I am not some puny dude that is just "sensitive" to everything), but damn, strong odors make my nose go crazy anymore.
And while pinball is the ultimate! For variety Golden Tee is awesome, and so is Big Buck Hunter.
Although Big Buck can make your arm/shoulder sore if you play too long.
And right after dinner, a simple and very cheap ping pong table is good to play for 30 minutes for some exercise.
(a ping pong table does take a lot of space that could be used for pins, but good therapy when you try to get your pinball addiction under control).
Life is awesome!
If you can do well at all then as you get older you will have toys like when you were young, except they will be a whole lot bigger and better.
I am not rich. I used to look at the "show us your game room" on here, and I was hell no, I just have these games in my office in my basement, and nothing at all fancy like all that.
Man those pics of all the awesome comfy chair home theaters and bars and everything else I was just like WOW!
BUT, I am never even trying to keep up with anyone, I do not do that. So far I am still using a flip phone with no internet for calls, and a cheap computer for being here and conducting business that pays my bills.
I confess I am glad I was able to break this pinball addiction. At one time I was up to 8, and making room for 12.
Now I have 2 pins that will never leave, and a variety of other games also.
Long ago when I bought the boat, several old timers told me the best day of your life is when you buy that boat, and the 2nd best day of your life is when you sell that boat.
I was the same way with pins.
All NIB that I went and picked up, un-boxed back here, pulled out any packing out of the playfield, and that new pin smell..awesome.
(maybe if they could make a cologne that smells like a new pin I may could wear that).
And the one topic: Who Likes Beer?
I was all into that until I seen it was all this "in my opinion" weird and high dollar beer. And those beers were in very nice basement bars.
I confess there are threads here that I would still like to look at, but if I do I feel like I have failed in life.
Sometimes I would like to put a pic in the "what game did you bring home today" topic. But I am embarrassed how my area is just so simple and not fancy.
(at least with that topic a lot of pics are just in a suv or a garage).
Anyway, I am not feeling well at the moment. (beer did not help, but also did not hurt), and my main concern is my Mom.
Mom knows I have a will, but she has bad memory loss and will never remember.
So if anything ever happens to me, maybe someone here can contact the members that have left me feedback(most are local), to maybe just try to remind Mom that I do have a will.
I hope it never comes to this, but the will was done before I ever purchased the first game, so most likely Mom would be happy to have help, and give someone a game for helping.
And I fully trust my girlfriend, her name is Phyllis. She just lives the next street over, 3 houses across the lake.
I have a awesome lawyer I have trusted for over 25 years, Carl Adcock. His office is near Atlanta Rd. and 285.
I confess I wish I could just be funny as hell and entertaining right now, but I am having weird issues, so I just wanted to make a record of some things.
And that damn Oktoberfest topic I love to read because I have one jinxed me the other day. So many pics of the ball getting stuck off the beer barrel ramp, and I thought I was so glad I had never had that happen, and BOOM, 3 times in a row the next time I played.
And if anyone that already has a very fancy game room reads this, trust me, you will want the new Big Buck game. It is fun to play, and it is lit up like a fancy jukebox when not being played. It makes my simple man cave look like a Dave & Busters or something.
