On Thursday, I stopped by EmBee to pick up the mail. I was kind of excited, due in no small part to the fact that I glossed right over those three envelopes from American Family that would later turn out to be bills for insurance premiums. Yep. Those future lottery-winnings-suckers didn't even register. All I had eyes for was an oversize postcard mailer thingy from River Bend Casino. It's one of the seven establishments that my sister the ex-mayor's wife and the ex-mayor and Hick and I patronized during Casinopalooza.
Yes, that whole mile of thumping along the gravel road, my 44 oz Diet Coke sloshing like my left knee after a long-ago injection with radioactive dye during a lab test before MRIs were popular for detecting soft-tissue injuries, I was reminiscing about the good time I had during Casinopalooza. How I prefer those Oklahoma casinos, with their red-screen bonus VGT games to the IGT games in Missouri casinos.
Yep. My thoughts drifted to the upcoming Casinopalooza 2 planned for mid-May. I was pleasantly reminiscing as I turned T-Hoe into the long, long driveway. I absentmindedly punched the radio over a couple of stations, looking for a better song. I stopped on Prime Country, my old standby.
It was David Frizzell and Shelly West, singing "You're the Reason God Made Oklahoma." With the chorus of "You're the reason God made Oklahoma, and I'm sure missing you."
Pretty sure the Feds have developed a way to read minds through On-Star or Sirius XM.
I guess we should all start to worry if I develop a habit of tuning in to Shelly West singing "Jose Cuervo."
