Casino Life

Holy shit, I’d just moved to Tucson, AZ and live five minutes away from a casino. You heard me, five minutes away from a casino. I know, it’s supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Seriously, but hold the fuck up, it gets better.

Long story short, I’m from Denver, Colorado and the casinos were an hour away, so no I didn’t go often for that reason and also because my money was tight. Some of y’all know what I’m talkin’ about regarding money. Listen, I’m not gonna go gambling with the money to pay my mortgage, OK! Not that kind of a girl. Anyway, before I’d left Denver to move to Tucson, I’d heard from a reliable source about casino Etiquette. I really didn’t know that shit existed, but it does.

Something about how a player will take a break for whatever reason and leave a sign that the slot machine they’re on is not to be touched because he/she is coming back. Well, apparently some really nasty confrontation had occurred between customers fighting over a slot machine. I really didn’t know it was all that serious. Yeah, you can stake a claim to a slot machine. Who knew?

Also, I didn’t know that drinks are free at casinos. I kid you not. I’m talkin’ about alcohol drinks. You should’ve seen the look on my face when I’d found out! 🙂

OK, I went to the casino for the first time since my move to Tucson and it was lit for a number of reasons. First things first, I went to the ATM machine and withdrew $100. The first area I went into after arriving was filled with penny slot machines and a few casino tables. I was seriously looking for the twenty-five cents slot machines and I didn’t find any. Then I went beyond that first area and saw more penny slot machines until I’d come upon an enclosed room with a sign above it ‘High Limit.’ It was all glass so I could see that the slot machines inside were $1, $5, $10, and upward. My kinda room and you’ll have to come back to find out what happened.

Casino life is the life for me. I’m a happy girl. My new name is ‘Diamond Girl.’

OK, I’m excited. So excited that you and I are worthy of abundance. Hey, a $30 Federal minimum wage law is an idea whose time has come.

Stay tuned because I’m going to videotape my next visit to the casino.
