Just a Boring Stay at Home

You would never catch me at a casino. I’m not a betting person.
That is to say, yes, I will predict outcomes on occasion. And I’ve been known to be right. But playing blackjack? Or roulette? No, thank you. And especially not dice games.
For one thing, I have never acquired the desire to play games of chance. There’s no thrill in winning, and wondering/hoping that I will continue to win – to have a streak.
Second, I’ve never believed there is a large enough return for the effort involved. There are lots of things I could be doing with my time instead of sitting at a table somewhere playing cards. (Unless, of course, it’s a game of gin rummy or euchre with friends. Or maybe cribbage.)
Third, there are enough things to spend my money on, without choosing something for which there will probably be virtually no return.
For those that enjoy it – by all means – knock yourselves out. For me, well, I think I’ll just stay home and read a book.
