I went to the casino with the ladies on Friday night and I lost big.
I was up about $400 until lunch time when the ladies and I went for seafood.
The full belly made me 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 five times as much as I was before lunch and I really went through the money quickly. I went home at the end of the day and had to tell my husband about all of the money that I lost playing the slots. Looked really upset when I started telling him about my loss, so I started to blame everything and anything I could think of. I blamed the casino for having tight slots and I blamed my bad luck on being too cold. I told my husband that the air conditioner was making me lose concentration because it was just too cold. My husband didn’t buy any of the excuses, including the terrible one that I made up about the air conditioner. On Saturday night, I went back to the casino but this time I decided to play in a poker tournament. It was extremely cold that night too and I was seated under an AC air vent. Every time I had a good hand, I couldn’t bluff because my hands were shaking. I really did have the air conditioner to blame for that loss, but there was no way I could use that as an excuse two days in a row.
