Comfortably numb (and dumb)
May 26, 2008
Another holiday, another day at the casino with Mother. While she plays her slot machines, I’m hopelessly addicted to the machines that line the bar. Video poker and video keno are totally boring but that kind of goes with who I am. I can spend hours (and not a lot of money) playing both and I don’t have to think about anything else in life. The ultimate in escapism. It didn’t hurt that I had a really great bartender (who was really cute) who never missed a beat when I needed a drink. At $3.00 a beer, I’m sure I spent more on booze than I did on that machine. Totally worth it.
