Tonight after work (speaking of work, the mall is freaking CRAZY on weekends, ugh) I got to go on a hot date with the ever awesome Brian. I'll be honest, we hit a rough patch this week largely due to me being over-reactive and having an issue or two, but somehow he forgave me and still likes me. Go Brian! Anyway, so we went to dinner at Champps and afterwards decided to rent a movie and possibly play games. We rented the movie 21 (which is great!), went to Pick 'n' Save next door and got gummi bears, and on the way back to Brian's house we decided to play cards. Is gummi bears spelled gummy bears or gummi bears? I just think gummy looks weird when referring to the bear species. According to Wikipedia it is gummi bear, although sometimes spelled gummy bear, and since Wikipedia is essentially doctrine, we're going with gummi. Oh and also on the wikipedia article it says they have a kosher gummi bear vending machine at the Jewish Museum in Berlin...who knew? Anyway...carrying on...
This is where I learned a very valuable lesson...gummi bears can be used in gambling. You see I had the desire to play poker (Oh don't worry I lost horribly...) but thats only fun if you can bet. Not having money nor poker chips makes one resourceful, and I thought it ended up being pretty fun. Seeing that we were watching 21 we switched over to playing blackjack with an imaginary dealer, and I actually came out ahead! I started with 12 gummi bears and ended up with about 18 or so since Brian started to eat mine so I can't give an official report. He had less than 12 gummi bears so in the end, I win! The only downside to playing with edible money is that you do in fact eat it so you could technically just eat your opponents stash. Oh and Brian may or may not have a welt appear on his forehead due to a gummi bear accidentally being flung at him ha ha.
