Do you have a pool table in your home?

I wish I did, but we decided against one because we could envision what the cats would probably do to it. I do have a pool game on my iPad that’s not too bad.

When I was a teenager, we had one in the basement, and I practiced a lot. In my early 20's I played 8 ball at a local beach bar. I enjoy it, but I also started using swear words when I missed shots. That was something I hadn’t done before.

I tried playing pool on my kindle but I didn’t like it. It just seemed to awkward for me.

Sounds like you got quite competitive.

The one I use is called Pool Break. I don’t know if it’s on Kindle or not. I did get competitive. It was fun to beat the guys and watch them get all frustrated. The few times I’ve tried playing on a table recently, I’ve been really bad. I know what I want to do, but it doesn’t always happen. I’d have to practice. If my husband ever gets past having his migraines triggered by clicking sounds, I might just take him to play pool again.

Thanks I look.

I have to admit playing against guys and beating them is very satisfying! Haha

I hope your husband finds a cure and you two can play. You just need practice. I’m sure you could get it back.

I’ve played a lot in college but haven’t played much since.

I'm in So Cal. So it's outdoors on wheels on the tennis court.

Doesn’t it get damaged outside?

I had a work-study job at a snack bar where there was a pool table and a Jukebox. I played a lot. I got pretty good.

I could get good, but there's not really anyone to play with, and I'm much to busy now, having started school

I hope you make new friends at school that you can play with. Everyone needs down time.

Friends is one thing. Time is another. I'm at school all day, and work the weekends, and I'm an hour commute from school.

That is a lot. I remember when I started college. I had three part time jobs and four classes. I was close enough to walk to school.

That hour commute really sucks!

Well right now, I'm commuting with my dad since he works in the city, so I'm leaving at 6:45 am and don't get back until 6:15 pm.

Long days

Do you get your class work done before you get home?

I usually get most of my work done there, yeah. But I can do it at home and watch the news during my free time at school, as well. Not a problem. I can also get a bit of reading done on the T.

I remember there being a music tv show call in the bassment. It made me laugh when I was younger

Once when I was playing I thought the guy on a commercial was offering me a piece of gum and I went and told Mom. Lol I looked around to see if he came out of the TV. I worried about him for days. Lol

I was probably four or five years old. I think he’s very old at this point. I hope he’s doing alright too. 😹

Our house came with one. The people we bought it from had the upstairs living room decorated around it. When my husband eventually build his barn, he’ll make part of our attached garage into his man cave and it’ll go there. Then I’ll turn that section into my workout/meditation area.

You don’t want to meditate on the pool table? 😉

It’s not very comfortable to lay on. (Don’t ask how I know.)

No but I really want one. My wife won't let me take up all the room in the basement. I have a dartboard in my garage.

A pool table wouldn’t take up the entire basement.

I love playing darts.

No, but I do have a rumpus room with a new bumper pool table
