My friend was calling pocket pairs "pocket doubles" (of course, he was high at the time)--so that's the term we use now.

I can't remember numbers, so if I muck, I can't figure what would have happened. If I'm in a live game, I look weak because I have to keep checking my hole cards (Made me a fortune 2x with pocket aces that I kept checking.) Wikepedia has a complete list of the names of all cards and hands. I picked the following:
A Rocket
K Cowboy
Q Lady
J Fishook
10 Dime
9 Miner
8 Snowman
7 cane
6 Sex
5 Nickel
4 Sailboat
3 Ass
2 Duck

I make up an image using these names. so Q3 would be a lady showing her ass, etc.
It's an old Dale Carnigie visualization trick

For dyslexic people this system works great.
