Sorry about not blogging much last week – I kidnapped The Redhead for a desperately needed get-away: Four glorious days and nights at the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi.
Ever been there? You should go. It’s as much fun as I ever had in Vegas but for those of us in the East, without the long flight.
How’d we do? Thanks for asking! Well, we lost about $9,000 the first three days, then made it all back (counting comps) the fourth night. Blackjack tends to be like that if you do it right.
The high point of the trip was people. We met a lot of great ones. My favorite: An old guy from New York hobbled over to the table, sat down and motioned to the dealer. “I need you to deal real slow,” he said in an accent tinged with Yiddish. “Because I’m going to count cards but I’m not very good at it.”
For an hour, everyone at the table asked the old gentleman if he was through counting before making our moves.
At any rate, my head hurts, my eyes are bleary, my liver is still refusing to speak to me and I’ve got a pile of stuff to do for clients on my desk this morning.
So instead of doing a long article that’ll probably piss a bunch of people off anyway, why don’t we just have a nice conversation this week?
Tell me what I can help you with? Ask me anything you like about copywriting or marketing. I’ll check in every morning and afternoon to help any way I can.
Yours for Bigger Winners, More Often,
