Win, lose, or draw...
Sometimes, life can be quite a gamble. This weekend, that was definitely true. Early Saturday morning Parker and I were awakened by someone banging on our window. It was Thirsty. He wanted to go to the Casino in North Carolina. With no plans other than cleaning on the agenda we figured why not... what did we have to lose? As it turned out, quite a bit.
The casino was a mess. The place reaked of smoke and foulness. Coming from Mississippi, Casinos are nothing new for me. I am used to all you can drink, all you can eat, and slots that hit frequently. The casino in Cherokee was dry… no alcohol PERIOD. The food was a reheated mess and we did not hit. Not Parker, not Thirsty, and not me. Within two hours I lost 120. Parker lost 40 and Thirsty lost 240.
I should have listened to my first instinct. I did not want to go in the first place. I should have stayed at home and mopped.
For Thirsty, this was his fourth jaunt to Miss Harrahs. She's a horrible ole girl and we should have avoided her the way I avoid Virginia.
