Winner winner, chicken dinner!
Dean's work had their annual Christmas party tonight and the theme was Monte Carlo Casino. They had roulette and poker and, my favourite, blackjack. At first, we had no idea what we were doing (I'd never stepped up to a blackjack table before), so we observed several hands without betting.
After a while, we cashed in our $10,000 tickets and started to bet with our fake money. It turned out to be lots of fun and I do have to say that I was raking in the chips. It's so much fun to play with poker chips and stack them into neat little piles! Dean's little piles got a bit decimated, but mine were growing strong when they announced the last two hands. I bet $3000 and first drew a queen, who was shortly met by a lovely ace, giving me 21 and a two to one payout! I put $3K on the table and took back a sweet nine thousand. Woo hoo! What a great way to end a fun night!
