Milady and I were talking earlier this week and we recognized that we haven't "cut loose" in quite a while. It's been a tough winter with lots of family obligations and we needed a little recreation. As the calendar conspired to make last night St. Valentine's Day, we decided to go out and have an evening of couple-time.
We reviewed options and decided to go down to the local indian casino. It's small and has been open barely a year, but they put on a really nice seafood buffet We got to the casino at about 6:00, and the parking lot was packed. Evidently we weren't the only ones with the idea to enjoy a seafood feast. So, I got one of those little call-buzzers and visited with folks I know while the restaurant found a table.
After a very pleasant meal, (they bring in crab legs with a forklift, and shrimp by the bushel-basket) we sat for a while, playing video games (it is a penny arcade, after all). We kind of lost track of time what with all the pretty lights and fellowship. I looked at my watch and realized that the calendar had flipped, so we came home and fell into bed. I awoke at 9:00 this morning, not being able to remember the last time I slept till that late hour.
Assessing my liquidity, I am surprised to learn that the machines didn't hurt me a bit last night. All the coinage is accounted for, with a little surplus. That doesn't happen often and I'm relatively pleased with the outcome.
