racist, compulsive-gambling sack of douchebaggery, but there is one life-lesson imparted by him that I am grateful for:
He taught me how to kick ass at claw machines.
I know... great resume fodder, right?
But you know what, it is a fun little vice of mine.
Sort of like my cigarette.... because when I see one, I almost always have to play.
Malls, restaurants, ballparks, and yes, even in hotels. If there is a claw machine, I'll be feeding it quarters.
Of all the addictions to have (drugs, alcohol, Arby-Q's) I think this is a fairly safe one to have.
And like I said, I'm pretty good at it.
For example, there is a claw machine in the current hotel I'm in. I've only spent $1 so far, and walked away with these:
2 stuffed animals for $1? Not too shabby.
I usually only spend $1-4 at a time, and almost always walk away with a few things. Sometimes I give them away to nearby kids, sometimes I take them home and let my dog shred them to bits. I don't need them, but I like to win.
And I win a lot.
Side note, I was surprised to see the necklace to the left in a claw machine. It's a square and compass, the emblem of Freemasonry.
The Masons are a fraternal organization that requires a little bit of work to get into. I should know, I used to be one. Yet, in this machine, for as little as 50 cents, you could wear this snazzy piece of jewelry.
It makes me chuckle to imagine a 4yo girl wearing this. "The G stand for Gina, my name!" Ha, sure doll. Whatever you say...
Do you have any addictions? Video Games? Meth? World of Warcraft (one of my old favorites...)? Please share below...
