someday, when it's full, i'm gonna use it for a nice trip somewhere...

repeattutu, my mom hides most of her atlantic city winnings from my dad. they go down to "ac" on the blue hair busses, and my dad walks the boardwalk and sits on the beach and reads while my mom becomes a slot shark. she goes down with $50, and comes home with a few hundred so often it defies the odds. but she never tells my dad, and buys stuff for their grandchildren. there's 17 of them now, so she'd better keep winning.
