They’re having fun and they are happy. Sylvia and Mable are their names. They look like they’re full of life and having a blast. They must be in Vegas and it sounds like “bleep bleep, bing bing, beep beep!” Mable is wearing red and they are best friends and the husbands must be in the casino doing their own thing. Their husbands are also best friends and the women are happy their husbands gave them money to have a good time, all twenty-five dollars. They seem to be uniquely aged and enjoying the same thing. They’ve known each other since childhood. They toss the dice and hope to win the jackpot! They look crazed. By now the jackpot is big and they’re beating out the money. It sounds like change moving around, machines going off, money being thrown around. And Mable is ecstatic. If Mable doesn’t get the result she wants, Mable gets mean and jealous and tries not to show it, but Sylvia cheers her on! Mable is getting frustrated and running out of money and now they’re pretending they’re having fun. Sylvia tells her if they don’t win the jackpot, they’re still winners because they have each other.
