My version of the famous card game metaphor:
When to hold: This is basically when you keep the game rolling because today is going to a good one.
When to fold: You’re screwed. Hope tomorrow is better and throw in those cards.
When to hold:
When you fill up your coffee punch card. Or any punch card for that matter.
When you get your bill and you realize your server comped your drinks.
When you have a free pastry with your Panera rewards card.
When your favorite song from months ago comes on your indie radio station.
When an item of clothing you’ve been coveting goes on super sale.
When you go to get gas and the price for regular is $3.19.
When you realize days start getting longer.
When you get a sweet card via snail mail from an old friend.
When to fold:
When your least favorite song is on more than one radio station at the same time.
When you lose a contact.
When you get home from eating out and realize the restaurant double charged you.
When you bite into a rotten cherry tomato.
When no one likes your Instagram upload.
When you put on a pair of tights and your toenail puts a run in them.
When you rent a movie on Itunes and it takes 8 hours to download….and then you forget to watch it.
When you text the wrong person something embarrassing.
