I went to the casino with the ladies on Monday evening and I lost big.
- I was up about $400 until supper time when the ladies and I went for seafood.
The full belly made myself and others want to gamble more loosely. Instead of playing the nickel slots, I moved to the slots that cost at least one quarter for each pool of the handle. I started betting more than four times as much as I was before supper and I particularly went through the money hastily. I went home at the end of the afternoon and had to tell my spouse about all of the money that I lost playing the slots. Looked particularly frustrated when I started telling him about my loss, so I started to blame everything and anything I could suppose of. I blamed the casino for having tight slots and I blamed my bad luck on being too cold. I told my spouse that the cooling system was making myself and others lose concentration because it was just too cold. My spouse did not buy any of the excuses, including the terrible one that I made up about the cooling system. On Monday evening, I went back to the casino however this time I decided to play in a poker tournament. It was severely frigid that evening too and I was seated under an A/C air vent. Every time I had a good hand, I couldn’t bluff because my hands were shaking. I particularly did have the cooling system to blame for that loss, however there was no way I could use that as an excuse more than one mornings in a row.
