Wii are lucky!

For those of you who don't know Noah, you're probably unaware that he is THE luckiest man ever and I'm not exaggerating. If you know Noah, you already know this.

Fact: Before marrying me Noah paid for his schooling, housing, and food from gambling winnings, never bringing more than $20 of his own money to the casino. His biggest win: $900 in one day. He has since stopped gambling for moral reasons.

Fact: he married me, 'nuff said.

Fact: in the three years he has worked at Intelliserv (a company that employs roughly 250 people), there have been three annual parties with drawings for prizes (usually 10 available, one being "the big prize").

Fact: In the past three years, Noah has won "the big prize" every year--year 1: a Garmin GPS unit, year 2: a digital camcorder, year three: keep on reading.

Fact: Gabby and Alex have been saving their money for a Wii this year.

Fact: Gabby has employed the services of a fellow classmate to pull her teeth out at school (two to be exact) in order to get money from the tooth fairy for the Wii. She is currently working on another tooth and wiggles it until it bleeds.

Fact: Alex has become potty trained with the main motivation being $50 added to the Wii fund. We have not had any accidents since he started, not even bed wetting.

Fact: Yesterday marked mine and Noah's eight year anniversary (more on that in a later post) and was also the night of Noah's third big company party. The main prize of the evening--a Wii.

Fact: People teased Noah before the drawing saying, "haven't you won the main prize every year? You better not win the Wii." Noah simply smiled knowing deep down inside that the wii was his.

He was right.

That is awesome! After you guys left the party the other night, that actually came up...Noah's luck or something about his gambling! Way to go Noah!

Do the kids know about the Wii? Sim wants to know Noah's strategy.

Alex found out about the Wii yesterday morning (saturday, while Gabby was having a sleep over with her cousin Paige). Gabby found out about it this morning (Sunday).

As for Noah's strategy, it's all in the vibes.

That's super cool. My kids favorite wii game is mario cart. Just a suggestion. Hope you guys are coming to the cabin!

You're right about Noah, I've been gambling with him! He has uncanny luck, it's amazing. He also knows every bit of the Newsies soundtrack and will sing along with gusto, which helps you laugh it off when you drive home with a pocket full of nothing and he has winnings from someone else's abandoned change!

You are funny! Noah is a lucky guy, good thing you can benefit from it.

Gretch said...

I love it! Noah is one lucky guy! You need to post Alex's reaction. Classic!

I don't know where my camera is with the video, I think I left it in Payson or something.

Spence and I were actually talking about Noah's uncanny amount of luck the other day (and that was before we even knew about his winning the Wii). I swear, his luck is the stuff legends are made of.
