That One-Armed Bandit

If you're wondering why there are no more pics of Zoe, it's because I've lost interest. You're lucky I went 6 days or 5 days or however long it was. I tend to lose interest in about 2 or 3 days so this was a pretty good stretch for me.
This probably explains why I'm not married.

But anyway...
I pulled an all-nighter at a casino this weekend.
We drove in the pouring rain all the way to Coushatta in Kinder, Louisiana because apparently, Texas don't take kindly to no gamblin.

Casinos are strange, it's like entering a time warp. It seemed like within the first 10 mins, I lost $60.
After checking, I'd been there an hour and a half.
I met up with a friend and she was down to her last $20 so we grabbed a bite to eat and hit the club to listen to the band.
They were really very good and we finished out their set with them at 2:30am.
After that, I hit the slots and that's when I started winning.

I ran into my mother who showed off a wad of cash. She hit a $600 jackpot.
I was at a dollar slot so she sat down next to me, slapped a 100 down and immediately hit $200.
She literally almost fell out of her chair! If I hadn't caught it, she'd still be on the floor.

I guess I'm good luck.

Anyone wanna take me gambling to find out?
