Since we are out-of-town hillbillies, none of that normal gaming rigmarole for us! We do our gambling early, by cracky! Up with the chickens, and back home before dark. Genius seemed disappointed at first, when I told him Hick was driving us there.
"Oh. I thought it was going to be you and me. You said I could drive you."
"No. Your dad and I both planned on taking you. We haven't been gambling forever. A couple of years at least. Besides, I figured if you had a drink, what with your brand-spanking-new-21ness, your dad could drive us home."
"Oh, I PLAN to have a drink."
He may change his mind when he finds out he has to pay for it. Mom's Gambling Stake, Inc. does not provide a drinking allowance. I already warned him to wear something washable. Not because he will spill alcohol on his togs, or because he will "refund" his lunch. Because he will come out of there smelling like a smoked ham lost in a house fire in the middle of 10,000 smoldering acres after a wildfire.
Genius doesn't know what kind of gambling he wants to do. I imagine he will end up on the video slots. He probably knows how they work. Hopefully not enough to be banned for life from the casino.
Val, on the other hand, prefers the more traditional 3 reel variety. They are probably obsolete now.
I never expect to win at the casino, victory to me is if I can stay on a machine longer than 20 minutes before I lose my $20 limit.ReplyDelete
I don't expect to win, either. I expect the entertainment of HOPING I can win each time that slot machine ALMOST lands on a jackpot.Delete
Hope he wins a bundle. Hope you do, too. Supposed to get up to 8 inches of rain. Be careful the creek doesn't rise while you are away.ReplyDelete
We didn't win, but we didn't lose TOO BAD. "Too badly," for the Grammar Police. The creeks were on the rise. More on that next post.Delete
I like Black Jack but I never win much. Merry Christmas.ReplyDelete
I like Black Jack, too. But I would never play a table game in a casino. Val does not like to look the fool. Shocking, that revelation, I'm sure. I'm really good at Black Jack and horse racing on my computer CD game, though.Delete
My dad could never understand why people complain about losing money in a casino. He loved gambling & he never lost more than he could afford. He figured his losses were the same as buying a ticket to a play or an amusement park!!ReplyDelete
Yes. Today we had five hours of entertainment. The cost of our tickets will be revealed next blog. Casinos would not be in business if they didn't make money. Some people seem to forget that.Delete
Genius SHOULD make the biggest gamble of all--decide to become a teacher to see if he can make scads of money at it.ReplyDelete
That ain't happenin'! He has insider knowledge. And he's really not the caring type. More of a closet politician, that boy.Delete
