Lets play a game....

My parents like to go out and gamble. They like to go to a casino and play the slots or play cards. They do this a couple times a week on average. I don't really see it as a problem...they have worked hard and continue to do this is what they do to have fun.

They are kind of funny about it when we, their kids, ask them how their night was...
"oh we had a good time"
"oh it was ok"
"oh we should have just stayed home."

They never just say how they did...not that it matters...I have figured out what they mean...

when they say "oh we had a good time" they mean..they won some money. Of course their level of enthusiasm lets on what level of winning they have done.

when they say "oh it was ok" it means that they may have won a little, broke even or at least lost very little while playing all night.

when they say "oh we should have just stayed home" it means they lost and the machines or cards did not even play with them....

They are funny because they will tell our cousins that they won and even how much they won....but not us kids. Its fine, I could care less its not like any of us have every asked them for money...but for some reason they don't tell us anything. Maybe they are afraid we will worry or something..who knows.

Anyway I hope you all have a great week!!

my parents did the same thing -- never really saying how much either way (except sometimes, my mom would give my sister and me some of her winnings; assumed BIG time wins* those times).

i never really cared either -- i'm pretty sure it was never problematic as they didn't go that often.

* BIG time is relative (maybe around $100). :)

Hope you have a wonderful week.
Take care, Meow
