I heard once about a man that has gone to a casino the day before the closing on his first home. As can be readily imagined, he gambled away his down payment. I heard about this not in the context of "Wacky and Weird," but rather, as a back story to an icky murder. Yes, his wife had killed him.
So, in order to avoid this kind of mischance in the weeks before our closing day is here, I went with Chris to Foxwood's and we gambled away our savings together.
