Why is there Mother’s Day?

11 Nov

A while ago Ian asked me why there is a Mother’s Day.  This morning, I thought of a good answer.

Because…I am up at 5:45 AM every day even though I would prefer to be a night owl.

Because…I stand by patiently (most days) while you and your brother examine all five boxes of cereal to pick out your correct breakfast choice.

Because while cutting pickles for your sack lunch, I am also dancing with your brother to the Beatles.

And I do all of this before my first cup of coffee.

Why Do I Love the Casino So Much?

24 Jul

Tonight Jim and I went on a date. This happens only a couple of times a year, so it is a big deal. After a leisurely meal sitting outdoors at the Wicked Hop,  I was itching to go to the casino.

Once I get past the ghostly palor of the people exiting the casino and arrive in the lobby, I get a giddy happy feeling.  As Jim was doling out $5 dollars to each of us, I was trying to figure out why the casino makes me so happy.

Here is what I came up with:

Free soda (for my inner child) + second-hand smoke (takes me back to my childhood) + risk / reward opportunities (I love a good risk) + Dance Party Game (my game of choice) = CASINO LOVE

P.S. Started with $10, hit a high of $60, played for an hour more… finished with $2 more than we started with:)
