Or does it?
Last Thursday we went to stay at a local hotel in Vegas because of a great deal we found here. It was a really cheap, fun stay-cation! We went swimming at the pool, ate a bunch of junk food, and just relaxed.
Once we had our snacks, we began heading back to the room. But Scott was distracted by the shiny slot machines. Ha ha, not really, but he really wanted to try a machine. "Just once", he begged.
We had a total of three dollars cash left and he wanted only one. I agreed to let him try it, if I could have the other two dollars to buy some pop tarts. We had a deal.
I just wanted to get the whole thing over with because we all know that "gambling never pays". Oh sure, you can win every once in a while, but it's generally not worth the risk.
But Scott insisted that we find the machine for his dirty dollar. He finally found a sparkly Wheel of Fortune machine. He inserted his dollar, pulled the lever, and, yep, you guessed it: he won $20. It was tempting to keep going and try to win more, but he decided to quickly hit the "Cash out" button and we ran to redeem our money!
(Please note that during this whole time it was definitely not legal for me to be there because I was under 21. Shh, don't tell!)
I was pretty speechless after that. But it was hilarious. We'll never gamble again, obvi. But wow. What a night.
P.S. There's a Shine Project giveaway here that I'd love to win. You could check it out too, I guess.
