Opportunity used to knock, but now it will text, or email, instant message or put something on Facebook (it will only fax to people with who can send/receive from their computers, opportunity is kind of a technology snot). Fortunately, I am a very tech savvy person, with an iPhone, an iPad, and a blog, so I was available when opportunity posted.
My friend, the inviter is a genius! A MENSA member, with an advanced degree in accounting, an appreciation for a good plan, and a very good relationship with numbers. So, all I need to do is get her to explain "counting cards" to me on our way to the church. How hard can it be, there are only 52 cards in a deck, right? Plus, it really wouldn't do any good to start "counting" until after a couple of hands, it doesn't take a mathematician to figure that out. At that point it has to be more like subtracting than counting, and I was pretty good at subtracting in school. It may have been my best math operation, certainly better than division, I am still trying to figure that one out. Any way, I could make some serious moolah tomorrow at the church.
I will have my wife keep her eyes peeled for "security." I won't clean out the fund, it is a church, after all. And, of course, a generous donation will be made to the Susan Retirement Fund, a charity my whole family supports. After watching the documentary "21" it seems pretty easy.
