The One Armed Bandit is Just Beyond My Reach

I was looking forward to going to a conference later this week and then the shit hit the fan at work and we're short staffed, so I had to cancel the trip.  Which is really too bad, because it could have provided me with a new retirement plan.

You see, the New York Association for the Education of Young Children, (or NYAEYC for short,) is holding its annual conference at Turning Stone Resort and Conference Center... which also happens to be a casino!

 Yay!  Gambling!

Now, let's review....


Is it just me, or does that strike you as a strange combination?  Then again, I might pick up some tips on how to teach the wee ones about money, odds and percentages.  Just sayin'...

 Come on, Kids!  Let's Go Gambling!

Anyway, I figured I could put my "Let's Go To Prison" retirement plan on hold while I try to get rich quick on games of chance.  I even hear that they have penny slot machines there... my kind of gambling!  Break out the spare change!

Having never gambled before, except for the occasional rousing game of dreidel, it might take me a short time to get the hang of the whole thing.  But, I'm sure it could prove to be an intellectually stimulating and lucrative pastime.

But, alas, it's not to be.  Damn work!

Maybe I'll get lucky next year.
