An epiphany

Had while driving through Childress, Texas at 3am, snow on the ground, radio blaring, belting out old country songs at the top of my lungs, trying to stave off drowsiness and tears...

Who knew Kenny Rogers The gambler wasn't about playing cards? :)

I feel silly. I've loved that song for literally my whole life. I remember being 5 years old, flying down dirt roads in my dad's old ford pickup and singing that song. I remember crayons and sawdust and drawing pretty pictures on the studs of the house my dad built, that song playing on the old GE radio. It was part of the soundtrack of my childhood, and it was about cards. Real post from a real keyboard and computer after sleep.
