you're looking at me with blank eyes


Some of my dad's classic lines are from good times playing board games.  When playing yatzhee, if anyone managed to get 5 of a kind, a "yatzhee", my dad would let loose this prolonged skreech in celebration.  As kids we thought it was hilarious.  As an adult I wonder why my mom didn't throw away the Yatzhee box.

I've never prayed to baby Jesus harder than I prayed for Dad to get a Yahtzee. I fuckin' loved when he got a Yahtzee. It's one of those Dadisms that can't be done justice on paper.

incidentally, what do the titles of the posts mean? Like, what does "you're looking at me with blank eyes" have to do with anything?

I didn't like it. It was loud and obnoxious and usually meant I was going to lose.

I, too, have wondered about the post titles.

The titles all come from the original punch lines of the comics. I always kind of liked the loud obnoxious Yatzhee screech.
