winners and losers
Went to Reno (aka "the biggest little city in the world") this past weekend. I actually hit a small jackpot on a slot machine and came out ahead for the weekend. The boy also had good luck (or maybe it's skill), and placed "in the money" in a sizable poker tournament. Inhaled lots of secondhand smoke (I wish the casinos were in California, so they'd have to be smoke-free), and had to leave for a little while on Saturday just to breath fresh air and relieve my sinuses. My clothes all reek from the recycled air and my contacts will have to be discarded asap. I wonder how the employees and dealers handle it.
