Urban Cowgirl Meets Doc Holliday
(May selection for Another Year of Schnibbles 2012)
I'm a true urban cowgirl - raised in south Texas on a ranch with cows, horses, goats, chickens, etc. As a teenager I moved to the big city and that's when I became an Urban Cowgirl. :-)
As an urban cowgirl I never met Doc Holliday. Sigh! If I thought there was an chance that I could meet him then believe me I'd hop in my Rodeo (although I sold it recently - LOL)
I'd pull up to the saloon (urban bar) where I heard he was playing cards and challenge him to a game of poker. OK, I don't know how to play poker but that's our secret - sshhh. LOL He'd have his bottle of whiskey and I'd order a caffeine free Diet Coke. I believe that Jesse James and Billy the Kid (he was under age but don't tell anyone) would be drinking beer.
As he stared across the table at me, Doc Holliday would shuffle the cards, have Jesse James cut the deck and deal around the table. The game would be going well because I was winning - LOL. All of a sudden Billy the Kid would stand up, pull his six shooter and accuse Doc Holliday of cheating. With my eyes full of fear I'd grab the money and dive under the table, after all I don't own a gun. I managed to run out of the saloon (urban bar) with all the money and hop on my horse (OK, my Rodeo) and ride off into the sunset.
I don't know whether or not Doc Holliday was cheating but he definitely had Card Tricks up his sleeve. LOL
Y'all come back now, ya hear!
