The headline is right. The Micro Manager gambled at the Casino today.
Now I've never said that the micro Manager is not a gambler but those who've followed me for a while know that she is probably the last person to ever gamble.
So what happened?
Well in this province there is a card called Winner's Edge. The government controls gaming and issues the Winner's Edge card which is something like a loyalty card. You can build up points on your card and redeem your points for meals, draws and gambling.
The other day The Micro Manager got a card in the mail that they had put $20.00 on her card. So there's only one way to get your twenty bucks. You have to gamble. The worst that can happen is that you lose the twenty bucks.
The Micro Manager has absolutely no idea how any gambling machine works so one of the staff helped her. Of course it didn't take very many minutes and the $20.00 was gone except for a nickel and that was too little to continue. She took the coupon and got her nickel. That's it for her gambling experience. I wish I'd taken my camera to show you all the fun the Micro Manager had.
While I was out for my walk today , I found a nickel on the road so between the two of us we made 10 cents today!
It was fun while it lasted.
