“I bet on a horse at ten-to-one. It didn't come in until half-past five.”

Being the good mothers that we are, my sister and I took the kids to the racetrack this afternoon. We consumed $1.00 hotdogs and 0.75 cent sodas; I bought a tip sheet and proceeded to lose each and every race where I placed a bet. Heck, I couldn’t even pick the right window to place my bet ~ I always seemed to get in the one queue that had issues. My sister did win once, on the first bet she made – she received a whole $2.40 on her $2.00 bet. Oh yeah, we are the original high stakes gamblers.
