TBWCYL Day 272 - Getting Dicey

The Book gave me the story of "The Dice Man" which was about a man who used dice to decide his fate. That's why today I let a set of dice rule my decisions. By setting decisions based on odd or even number combinations, I was no longer responsible for my choices.

It started first thing this morning by deciding two things. First, I rolled to decide if this morning I was going to go get a tea on the way to work. The answer came back as 'no' so I went without. The second involved how to get to work. Odds made me take a left and use one highway, evens dictated I go straight and take the other highway. Not big decisions but they affected my day slightly. Had I gotten the tea or taken Highway A my life might have taken a different turn.

Diana sent me an email to ask if I wanted to go to the store with her after work and I assigned the numbers and rolled. She had to go by herself. I can only assume fate saved me from some unforeseeable doom.

Work didn't allow for any die being cast due to being in a training all day. I did pull them out as I was leaving work to determine if I was going to mow my yard. Honestly, I wasn't looking forward to it but when the die rolled a 10, I no longer had a choice and came home to pull the mower out.

Having to mow meant it was finally time to go fill up the gas can and I asked the die to decide if I was going to just buy gas or get a drink while I was there. Fate smiled on me and I got a tea with my gas purchase. It also determined that I was going to listen to Rock music instead of Country while mowing.

We made a quick meal of nachos this evening and Diana told me to preheat the oven. I told her I would have to check with the die to make that decision and they disagreed. As it was time to eat I cast to find out the number of nachos I could have and rolled a mighty 7. Diana was still hungry and made a second helping to which I was given another 7 from a second roll.

I took the dice up to bed thinking I might get to play sexual Yahtzee but Diana just read and then went to sleep. It was sort of anticlimactic. I really wanted to yell "Yahtzee".

That is all,

Hahahahaha, "sexual Yahtzee".

I would have cheated my rolls soooo much with this one!

This is one of the book's more entertaining challenges.
