I began the day with a screwdriver and some video poker. Played perfectly - which I am capable of doing – you can actually beat the house. ( Note to self: No matter how expert you become, you can still lose.)…
Four to a royal flush makes me want to cry….
Every once in a while, I announce to Sarah, the bartender, “Back to even!”
Sarah is lithe. She’s worked at Hooters for 6 years. She tells me she’s a single mother with a little girl.
“At least you no longer have to put up with all that belching and farting.” She laughs and brings me another screwdriver.
Then I hit a straight flush with three deuces.
