I’m cheap. No…I’m smart. I don’t gamble big bucks. I allow myself my twenty bucks and that’s all the loss I’ll take. Then again, if I double or triple it, I quit. I don’t take chances and I don’t take risks. I know the odds and I’m a tight-fisted gambler. Of course, you don’t win if you don’t take chances. Today, I’m taking a chance.
We’re at the caseeno and I can stay until 11:00 and still make it home for my doctor’s appointment. I feel lucky. I’m going down to the caseeno in a few minutes and spend some money. Last night, I started with $4.00, took it up to $18.00 and cashed it out. Then I took $20.00 and ran it up to $60.00 and cashed it out. DH still wasn’t ready to call it a day so I took another $10.00 and cashed it out when I got to $40.00. I’m ahead $82.00. I usually come out ahead because I STOP when I’m ahead. Today, I feel risky. I’m going to take my twenty and, if I lose it, I’ll quit. BUT if I win, I’m going to keep going. If I get up to $40.00, I’m leaving the penny slots and moving up to the dime slots. It’s one thing to risk $.45 with each spin but you never win more than a few bucks. Being as conservative as I am, I always quit when I’m ahead.
Reading this, you probably think I’m nuts. Feeling like I’m taking some real risks by moving up to the dime slots when I usually stick to the pennies. What can I say? I’m conservative. Cheap. Tight fisted. It goes against the grain for me to spend three or four bucks everytime I spin the slots. I still won’t spend more than $20.00 but I’m going to keep going if I’m winning. I feel lucky. So I’m going downstairs. Wish me luck!
