Good News or Bad News?
So there I was sitting at home in front of my computer on my short holiday when somebody asks me what I'm doing. Before I know it, I'm having a late dinner with my friends and then going to the Edgewater Casino for the first time this year. Since they picked me up for dinner, that means they drove me to the casino and would drive me home whenever everybody decided to go. Well, we were at the casino around 11pm. I figured we'd be there for a FEW hours. Normally I'd withdraw $200 or so from the ATM and play until I lose. For some reason I withdrew $400. Yikes. Lo and behold, 45 minutes later I've lost half of my bankroll. It looked bleak. But somehow someway I built the stack back up. I got four of a kind in Pai Gow, good for $125 bonus. Eventually, like 5 hours later I made it all back up and ended up even making $100. While normally that is really good news I feel a bit disappointed and (for lack of a better word) scared that I took so much money out. With my checkered past I hope this isn't the beginning of my trip back to the scary ages. Once in a while is fine. Meanwhile, I've probably screwed up my sleep cycle that I worked so hard to build. It's 5:30 in the morning and it's usually about an hour before I get up. Here we go again.
