I'm going to tell you this and please show some self control in the comment section. One of us needs to have some control since I have none.
It started off so innocently. Well not really but it seemed like a good idea at the time. Den and I thought(Den and I thinking together should never happen again. When we combine forces and agree, bad shit happens. We are better off on opposite sides at all times.) that we deserved a little grown up time. Honestly, porn shops ans strip clubs would have been a better choice.*sigh* We managed to dump off DJ on his grandparents on Saturday. Most of you would be thinking that a nice romantic dinner and sex would be great but no on that one too. We decided as a couple that we would go to a casino just over a hour south of us. We had planned to go on Sunday morning but decided that we couldn't wait.
I think this is the point that I need to interrupt myself. A few weeks ago when Anna was home and DJ was off school , we took the kids to the WI Dells. We dumped them off at the water park/hotel and we went to the casino. I had been working on an algorithm for roulette. Yes, I work on math problems for fun. It is great trying to figure out a way to predict the unpredictable. DJ would even join in and help me. And yes, I thought that I had solved one of life's mysteries-roulette. I impressed myself by being able to come out ahead the majority of time on an online site. And no, I was not teaching my child to gamble-it was a math exercise.
We cleaned house in the Dells. And I'm not kidding! We walked out over $300 up. We had a blast. We were there over 12 hours. We tried to sneak into our room at 4 am but we were far from stealth and pissed the kids off to no end. We won all the way around.
So we figured that we were unstoppable. Do you have a smug look on your face yet? Gloat, its fine. We took out $200, yes $200 and went to the casino. For some reason, we walked out of there with no money. None.
The next day, we decided that it must be the casino's fault and took out another $150 and hit a casino a hour north of us. Would you like to guess how this one went? We lost again. Hmmmm, $350 down in two days. And now is the point where someone needs to pick sluggy up from the floor. I bet she won't even be able to type.
I am now cured of gambling. Den I'm not so sure about. He said that he wanted to go back and try and get his money back. I said a better bet would be to rob a bank. It ain't happening anytime soon-the bank robbin' or the casino.
You could say that we are only $50 down but what I left out was the fact that I gave the $300 to my MIL to pay for our car when we go to Vegas in the summer. I don't even want to think about what will happen when we go back.
