Thoughts on Thursday: I am no card shark

I am taking a little break from Thursday Thirteen. So, I would like to introduce my new feature: Thoughts on Thursday. Today, I been thinking that I would not make a very good card player. Here is why:

I get a little confused about what makes a good hand. I think it is good when all the cards are in order. Right? Other players might get a little bit mad when I try to hide my bad cards. Let me see, I do not really need this Four card...
I am not very good at bluffing. Sticking out my tongue when I have a bad hand kind of gives me away.
I have trouble counting all the numbers on the cards, even when I use all my fingers and toes.
I do not have a good "Poker Face."
I would really rather practice magic tricks than play poker anyway. The Amazing Daisy can make this card levitate!

Gosh this was good! A+++++ Daisy.

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Daisy, you may not have a good poker face, but you are very good at card tricks!

topcatrules said...

Daisy thank you for the compliment. We are still very much a beginner and it took us a very long time - there were 18 layers!

Parker said...

Daisy - It's hard to keep a poker face. I think magic tricks would be a lot more fun!

Thoughts on Thursday~! What a great new feature~!

I think I won't be a great card player~! At least you would like to pick it up, I only sniff for a while and go away. I refuse to learn~!!

So, you are good enough~~~~
I think you will have your own card style~~~ I believe in you~!

Purr,
Adan

Rocky, Angie & S'more said...

Daisy - we agree with Parker - magic tricks are lots more fun :)

Thank you for making us smile every day sweet Daisy!

Love,

bluecrystaldude said...

hah! you make me smile every time I drop by your blog. Keep playing Daisy, you will do great. :DD

Beth said...

Daisy was bluffing- I'm telling you cats are good at this and I wouldn't play poker against her. I don't even know Daisy but I feel like I do. I think it's because cats are so much more like people than most think.

-d ma said...

Focus Daisy, focus...

The key to being a good poker player? Ya got to know when to hold them, know when to fold them ...

Eric and Flynn said...

Daisy you really mustn't smile when you got all those aces. You're probably right, better to stick to card tricks.

Karen said...

I do the tongue thing too when I have a bad hand. Well, at least it saved us from a life of gambling and dissipation!

Jessica said...

Daisy, I can count on you every single morning to make me smile. Thanks.

Cat-a-holic, Lilly and Laila said...

What a great card shark you are Daisy.

Honey P. Sunshine said...

Sarge Charlie said...

You are cracking me up today Daisy, I may go to the dog track to play poker later today, oh, do you like dogs??

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

I smell Temptations. Were there Temptations involved?? I think cards are very hard to play and you don't want to become addicted to gambling.

JB's Big World said...

I think you have a great poker face!

Monty Q. Kat said...

I think if you played poker with Skeezix you would still win with that poker face. :)

Sunny's Mommy said...

Daisy, I think you should good promise for playing cards.

In your first photo, you have a royal flush. That is like the bestest hand you could ever ever have! With a hand like that, you don't need a poker face. Just other players to take money from.

Tara said...

Isn't static electricity great?

The Meezers said...

Poker is hard!!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I would much rather watch you do card tricks than play poker!!!

Gemini

Icon Baxter Bentley said...

I have never tried to play cards... except for my mamma's credit cards - I like to play with the numbers on the keyboard and buy lots of temptations

Lorianna said...

Well, you may not have a poker face, but you do have a very cute face! You could play "Go Fish", but sadly there are no real fish involved. :) Have a great Thursday! Don't forget Miss Peach's Tea party.
Hugs and Purrs,
Lorianna

Great card trick Daisy! I agree, we can't aren't meant to be card sharks. I think we're more "craps" animals. Batting dice across a big felt table, knocking chips into squares. That is my kinda game. You, Pixie, Icon and Skeezix should come over and play sometime. I have a table in the basement.

Tybalt said...

Wow, Daisy! You may not be able to play poker well, but it looks like you would be a wonderful magician kitty! I bet you would look great in the cape and hat, too.

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

I do not make good card player because I cannot hold card in my paw. Kind of hard to bluff when everyone can see your paw.

Captain Jack and Sir Dante said...

Wow Daisy, you could be a magician!!

Queen Snickers or Empress said...

I love your magic tricks! That sees so much more fun then regular card games!~Queen Sncikers

Shilgiah the Cat said...

Daisy, I think you look like an expert at playing cards! But you might not want to have any money involved with your card playing.

I do like your magic tricks though.

Junior said...

I wouldn't be a good card player either...I would chew on the corners. That card trick is AMAZING!!!!!!

Scooby, Shaggy & Scout said...

We just like to chew the cards.

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Oh Daisy, you should put the levitating card trick in your circus act - that is very cool!

DEBRA said...

Daisy

I think you can start your own magic act!

Daisy I find this post very thought provoking..I think your poker face might give the game away!!!x

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Mom and dad play cards and we just sleep in da middle of da table. We think da majik triks wood be better.

Angus said...

Daisy, you may not fool them with your face, but you could certainly distract the other players with your beauty! One look at you and they'd be trading in the good cards without even knowing it!

Randi said...

Hi Daisy - Maybe you need some sunglasses to hide your expressive eyes...& a hat...or maybe even a lampshade...you are very expressive & sometimes you can't hide your true feelings..its Ok...just play with the cards...

Love & Licks,
Randi

Tamra Maew said...

Yoggie said...

Oh, I have never tried to play cards. Perhaps you should ask your humans for a paw-set version.

Kitikata-san said...

Hey Girl, did you win treats?

Gretchen said...

You've always got a card up your sleeve. I bet you 50 yellow temptations.

Hugs...G

Black Cat said...

I'm just the same Daisy, can't keep a "poker face" either and I have all the problems you do except I don't think I stick my tongue out. I certainly have to use all my fingers and toes to count the numbers on the cards though, lol! I would love you to teach me that levitation trick:) xxx

Just Sharlene and My Spice Cats said...

You never failed to impress me Daisy, now you even play cards!

Siani said...

Daisy, you're an amazing kitty! I bet you outwit everyone at poker. I missed Thursday Thirteen yesterday, too - couldn't think of anything.

BTW, I've tagged you - don't worry if you're too busy a kitty to do it, though. Have a nice, purry day!

Mo said...

Daisy, you really ARE amazing = you can always make a smile magically appear on my face!
Thanks!

Not The Mama

Nancy Lindquist-Liedel said...

You are so adorable, I would just love to snuggle you, but one does not snuggle a cat without said cats permission, so I will behave :)

Kaz's Cats said...

Don't worry about poker - we think you've got a future as a magician - making the card levitate was cool!

Purrs Gypsy & Tasha

Andrée said...

You'd do very well playing cards with my fifth graders, Daisy! They have a lot of the same problems that you do. Except they cannot do that card levitation trick that you can do. I want to know how you do that!
