Mumbles … Acumen

Acumen.  Yes, another one of those words I have heard once in the distant past, but don’t use it on a regular basis.  Oxford Languages says it is “the ability to make good judgments and quick decisions, typically in a particular domain.”  So, someone might say I have crafting acumen.  Or more specifically rubber-stamping acumen.  What I would like to do though has nothing to do with acumen… it is catching up again, I can’t believe I got so far behind.  I took one night off so it should only be one night behind, but I have been so tired I don’t have the energy or the brain power to think of things to write.  I guess that is why I am just mumbling through this post.

The good news is I did have a little fun for the one day I was absent.  We watched the Super Bowl (a sad game to watch) and then went to an area casino for a slot machine or two.  The first machine I picked I got a hit on the second spin of the wheels… won $115.  So, I put my initial money away and played on those winnings the rest of the night and the following morning.  I did lose some of it but coming home with an extra $65 was still a plus in my book.  I only do the slot machines, don’t know enough about roulette and have NO poker face. Do you play table games or slots? Do you have good luck at the casino?

  1. I used to go to play the quarter slots at some casinos, but it’s been a while since I was last at one. I think I ended up about $300 one time, but most other times my winnings were meager and my losses more frequent.
