The Ramblings of a Redneck Diva

Well that was a sucky thing
Mood:  don't ask
Topic: Things in life that suck
I did not win my birthday $500 at the Big Fancy Casino tonight. My dreams are shot all to hell. They didn't draw anything more than the usual $500. No five $100 drawings and then a promise to draw for $500 again at 11. AND they must've tightened up all the slots with their ultra high-powered screwdrivers or something because they weren't paying SHIT tonight. Okay, well Mom's friend, Bev - her machine was paying, but from what I could tell, hers was the ONLY one. I felt a little cheated by my Big Fancy Casino experience tonight. But I'm not bitter. I really have no right to be. I plugged their money in their machine, so it's not like I'm out any money.

Friday's my birthday and I plan on playing all the free plays I can possibly manage that day, so hopefully I won't have to blog with near-bitterness then. The way I have it figured I'm going to gamble away at least $85 worth of the indian casino owners' money on Friday and that cannot be considered a bad thing.

When I left the casino I went to WalMart. Husband wussed out yet again and conveniently "forgot" to buy condoms. Now, if I were a mean woman and a particularly un-horny one at that, I'd have just been stubborn and made him wait till he grew a set and bought them himself. But a girl's got needs, too. Right?

My fear: With all this horniness running rampant in our house lately, we're going to end up with Hoover Child #4. It's happened before, folks. It took us doing everything but dancing naked in a field of corn while a fertility priestess chanted something unintelligible towards the heavens, for us to get pregnant with Ab. Then, you get a little tipsy, get a little careless once and WHOOPSIE along comes #2, aka Sam. Then, you decide to throw yourselves a housewarming "party for two" (wink wink, nudge nudge) and WHOOPSIE along comes #3, aka Kady. I'm not sure what we could blame a next one on... a bad night at the casino? That one will be precious in the baby book.

You are so much fun to read. I'm sorry that you didn't win last night. The good thing about working there is that I never leave Ladies Night without making money! I get off work at 10:00 on Friday. I may call and try to meet up with you guys if that's okay. Of course I'll have to run home and change out of my smest. There are very few places where a smest is appropriate attire. Shocking, I know. I say, "Breed"! You and Paul make cute, responsible, intelligent kids. Give me something to look forward to if I don't leave Kindergarten.

You truly make me smile with all your writings! I do appreciate you sharing your life through humor with me! I read your column nearly every day and love knowing that I knew you "back when!" I'm not sure I'm ready for No. 4 in the Hoover clan BUT if you say so!!! Take care of yourself and that family of yours and just know that I think of you daily and smile.
