Dolly who is wearing the red dress loves to go to the casinos with her best friend, Ethel. Both women have been friends for fifty years. Once a month they go to the casino in Naples, Florida. They go to breakfast first and then for the afternoon they are at the casino together.
Dolly likes to play all the dice games because she has a good arm. Ethel likes to play all the pull slot machines. Her favorite game is the One Armed Bandit. Last year when she was playing this game she won $1,000. Ethel gave the $1,000 to her church as she did not need the money.
Today Ethel and Dolly are playing together. Dolly feels like it is going to be a good day. Dolly throws the dice and wins $500. She then throws again and wins $700. Ethel tells her, “To throw one more time and then we will leave this game.” Dolly is very excited and her hands are sweating. Dolly throws the dice and screams, “Oh No!” Dolly has lost all her money.
Dolly and Ethel decide to go back home with all their money gone. They get home and have lunch together and are sad and quiet. Dolly then goes to her room to take a nap. When Dolly gets back up she thinks about the exciting day she had. She cannot wait for next month to go to the casino with Ethel.
