Once a year some friends and I get a room at a casino to drink and gamble and not have to worry about driving home.  We always have a blast and we usually get into some kind of trouble.  My intention was to gamble very little and not lose too much money.  I started with sixty, playing Blackjack.  I lost 35.  I had a few more drinks and sat down at Flop Poker, a new game for me.  Once the dealer taught us how to play, I was on a winning streak.  It wasn’t long before I had a stack of red chips in front of me.  Nice.  Then I hit a Full House.  Twice.  Very nice.  Then I hit four of a kind.  It was amazing.  I walked away with $1600.  I fed a slot machine $100 and then quit.  I never imagined that I would win that much money.    

Speaking of money, I work with a lady, whom I love dearly, but she makes really bad choices.  She makes bad choices with money.  (She did not attend the gambling extravaganza.)  She has always had a man take care of her financially.  Now, she is on her own, although she has a boyfriend, he does not support her like her previous boyfriend did.  Her current beau can be challenging to deal with and he  gets onto her and her kids.  I can tell that she stays with him because she needs the financial support of a man in order to keep her head above water.  Watching her go through this, as well as my own experience, I am convinced that I will never depend on anyone else to support me.  Not that I have-I have always managed, not well, but I have done it.  I would like to get married someday.  If I don’t, no big deal.  If I do, great, but I will always work and have my own money.  And that’s all I have to say about that.
