Late night

Last night I went to the bar to play poker like I do every Tuesday after work. I am sitting there, playing a video game and I see some people walk in. I glance over and it's my parents! I did a double take because they live about 3 hours away. What a nice surprise!

We all played poker but as usual, my parents hadn't had their fill of gambling. Hey the apple doesn't fall that far from the tree right? We decided that we should take a little family trip to the casino. We all drive up to Totem Lake and settle in at our respective tables. I played blackjack until 1:00 am. It was a blast! My parents are a bad influence on me! I didn't eat dinner - just a couple of cheese sticks so I was starving this morning. I got a bagel and juice on my way into work. Yummy.

I am now sitting at my desk with a giant bottle of water trying to rehydrate and I'm sure my folks are sleeping soundly. They like to sleep until noon.

(I am up $100.)

Dear Raggedy Angst,

I am going to keep the $100 since I lost $300 last weekend at the casino! ;)
