Fibro Feelings – Going to the Casino

What is Fibro Feelings?

Awhile back The Helpful Hubby and I went to a casino. We had heard there was a buffet with amazing food, so we decided to check it out. From the outside, the casino looked amazing, but as soon as we entered I was flooded with the choking smell of smoke! I don’t know when the last time I was in a smoke filled room, but this was horrible! I noticed myself semi-holding my breath so that I wasn’t breathing in the nastiness as much. It made me think that incidents of second hand-smoke related lung cancer must be substantially higher in regular gamblers and employees of casinos. Do casinos offer good health insurance? I sure hope so!

Waiting in line to enter the restaurant took 30 minutes and that was an exhausting experience. As I stood there my senses were peaked. The carpet pattern was crazy and colorful, there were bright lights, flashing lights, lots of people talking, gambling machine noises, and plates clanking at the restaurant. Unfortunately, the pricey buffet food was only okay. We had a nice conversation with some ladies seated next to us and they confirmed the food that night was pretty typical fare. The Helpful Hubby and I had fun looking through the casino gift shop though. The casino was trying to hard to be fancy, yet their gift shop had a jewel-beaded baseball cap in it! Hehe!

On the way home we followed a car that had illegal tail lights. Every time the car hit its breaks or used its turn signal the individual lights would light up only 1/3 at a time, in different sections, moving from left to right.  Think left, middle, right, left, middle ,right. I was glad The Helpful Hubby was driving and not me! I had to put my sunglasses on (at night) to avoid getting a headache from the crazy tail lights.

I can’t stand cigarette smoke. That’s how our cruise was – smoke everywhere. I noticed these two little kids (their dinner table was next to ours so I noticed them everywhere) about 3 and 4 walking around holding their noses. How sad! It just made me so mad that people allow that and that people even smoke everywhere – it’s rude to expose us to their deadly habit! UGH – you have found my soapbox!

On the positive side your post reminded me that I played a slot machine for the first time on that trip and won $120. It was beginners luck. And believe me I took my winnings and ran. I didn’t waste it all by playing it all out. HAHA

Congrats on the winnings, Pam! Did you buy yourself something special? I played slots a few times and always ended up loosing most of the money I put in. Now I shy away from those machines.
