My addiction involves bright lights, high stakes, and big money. Well, sort of. Let's say that it involves bright lights, high stakes and fake money. But not counterfeit fake, more an imagined kind of fake.
The truth is, I'm addicted to bingo. The numbers, the letters, the cards, the daubs - it all sucks me in and won't let go. But that's not all. I'm also a slave to the slots. I just can't get enough of the bells, the whistles, and the money, honey.
But worry not, my friend. No need to send me contact info for Gamblers Anonymous. Because you see, luckily for me, you won't find me shelling out hard earned cash at the bingo hall, nor at the casino either. I play both games for free on my iPod touch. (tee hee. Did I have you going for a minute there?)
Yes it's true, folks. Whenever I have a spare minute to fill or I need something to take my mind off of a stressful situation, I switch on my iPod and gamble away. And let me tell you, I take these games very seriously. It's ridiculous, I know, but they're a rush.
My cat greets my enthusiasm with disdain and withering looks. But I don't care. I'm going to keep daubing those numbers, and spinning those slots until I've bored myself silly. Then I suppose it will be on to something else... I hear online poker is pretty popular.
Do you have any secret pastimes? Leave a comment and let me know. Maybe we can beat this thing together.
