okay..it's Old Broad's Day at the casino and I am getting ready to meet my friend...don't know what time yet because she is a nurse practioner and has to wait until all the patients are gone...Anway...
I have on my jeans and there is no underpants hanging out of the leg.  My free play, casino card, ID and twenty big bucks are in my zipped up coat pocket.  My socks match.  My shoes are on the right feet (yes...I once wore a pair of hand made sandals to an art festival on the VA Beach Boardwalk on the wrong feet.  A very nice lady stopped me and said, "I LOVE your sandals...where did you get them?  What she was really saying is 'they are on the wrong feet, you moron, and I don't want to embarrass you by telling this to your face). I have three advil in my jeans pocket.  Hubby has looked at my teeth and there is no spinach lodged between them.  My glasses are on my face....cell phone all charged up in case I get lost.
Oh, and my lucky troll doll that looks like Aunt Esther from Sanford and Son is in my other pocket.  (NOT...but I see tons of these every time I go, sitting on the machines).
Have I forgotten anything?
 (oh yeah...I should take a couple of those in case I cough or laugh)
