February 15 and 16 and it should be a marvelous show: "BRICK HOUSE", etc. A special hostess got me comp tickets and I space my visits there but still love the shore and the action. It will always be my favorite get away and that is why a slot angel or two blessed me on 7-7-07. I did not overextend too much and have retirement money, thank God. They must have been female and a few male slot angels flying above me. Hubby did not want to go and I caught the bus solo as 777 is my lucky number, as is 666 since I have a little "devil" in my soul. Since I won, everybody is offering me comp rooms, but I am wiser since 7-7-07 and take a more conservative approach. The Donald has "THE" best strawberries and whipped cream, lump crabmeat and shrimp cocktail. The "BOAT" has the most savory lamb chops. I spend a lot of time relaxing in my room and savor a few cups of the adjacent Starbucks Coffee Shop lattes. This does not mean that I ignore the slots, I am just more balanced and fewer and further between- balanced and healthier. I place the order for me and hubby and give a generous tip as working people need more money than slot machines. I will never forget my blackjack tournament at The Sands when I (EYE) was THE ONLY FEMALE in the finals. My host J. was proud to come and get me and take me to that finals blackjack table. I only ever played blackjack prior to that tourney THREE times and I taught myself. I never knew what the Hell a double down was but I learned it after just three times. I wore my sexy black camisole and a beautiful bling-bling blazer and full length black social occasions skirt. (Yes, plus-size women look great in black camisoles and black bras.) My gold shimmered as much as my smile because I felt that I was representing every woman in Atlantic City. In a way, I was. The moral of this story is: ladies should teach themselves to moderately gamble as a day out. Everything in moderation unless you can afford otherwise. And finally, if you do win, make sure that the first call you make on your consortium cell phone is to your husband, as I did. Do this and perhaps one day your soul mate will write a book about you, as is mine. In all honesty, that is NOT a job for anyone's Mother-In-Law- especially if they are anti-gambling.
