My Gawd! But He Was Great!
Travis was three-quarter drunk.
This was not unusual.
He had staggered from the El Cortez to the Union Plaza,
Thinking he might ‘get well’ at the blackjack tables
(His ‘stake’ had dwindled somewhat)
History dictated he would not get far.
However, Travis was feeling blessed and lucky this night.
We would see.
He spied a primo blackjack table, with only three ‘patrons’ seated there.
Perfect for an underachiever count-down artist, which is what he was.
But of course he saw himself as so much more.
He took his drink and his still smoldering Marlboro and his over-blown cockiness over to the table.
Sat down and said to the pretty young Ornamental dealer,
“Red and green”
As he threw out his last three hundred bucks….
She just smiled in that smile that Travis had seen so many times from the bar girls in Olongapo.
“Charming and Endearing” does not even come close as description,
What little did he know….
As a long tall blond broad took a seat next to him.
How his world was about to change.
And some days.
To be continued…
“I think I’ve seen this movie before… I didn’t like it”
This is ‘obviously’ my first foray into ‘fiction’
For as my ‘faitfful’ readers know, I do not attempt fiction.
No good at it.
Any resemblamce to Lance, the author, or his life experiences…. are purely coincendental and just a glitz in this mate-trix.
And of course
This story will be mostly about women
Never escaping that.
Just is impossible.
