Deal Me Outta Here

jokercardsWell, that’s it. I’m folding. I’m walking away from the table. And, I’m cashing in all of my chips.

It’s time for a change. I’ve given this whole writing thing a try for quite awhile, and sometimes you just “got to know when to hold’em, and know when to fold’em” — so to speak.

I’ve decided to ho ahead and join the rest of my family and move to Carson Valley in Nevada. I will be enrolling in the Reno Tahoe Dealers Academy and Bartenders School. I already have an interview scheduled to “evaluate my background, career goals, and motivation.” I’m packing up my truck and driving up on Easter Sunday.

If you know me, then you know that I dig casinos and I’m a huge fan of Blackjack. So, why not? Sure, I’ll be back in a school type environment — technical school — for awhile. I’m going for the big program — Casino Dealing Level III. This’ll provide me with the knowledge and skills necessary to not only pursue a career with a casino as a Twenty-One, Roulette, Pai-gow Dealer, Craps, Poker, and Mini-Baccarat, but also advance in the casino industry in pit supervision. How cool would that be? Me… a pit boss.

The tuition is kind of steep — almost $4,000, but I’ve managed some financial aid to cover some of the tuition, and my folks are willing to help me out until I get settled.

It should be an interesting change. Let’s just hope I finally hit the jackpot.

    I have always looked at you and thought…comic books – no, pit boss – YES! Good luck! Maybe you could get your own series on TLC, start a new trend in reality TV…”I chucked life in SoCal and became a pit boss (for just $4,000). Rad.

    Is this an April Fool’s joke?
