Thelma and Louise are a mother/daughter duo that is often mistaken for sisters, they always have been.These two have a problem, a big problem; they are addicted to gambling. It started out as a once a month break for fun and became an every weekend, then sometimes an every day foray into a casino. Thelma and Louise have all the nearby casinos mapped out, all the specials memorized. They can tell you the buffet menus and what shows are playing.
Today they are at The Spirit Mountain Casino and they are feeling LUCKY! Of course, they are ALWAYS feeling lucky.They are a part of the crowds, the thousands of gamblers and those just here for great food and shows and people watching.
Thelma and Louise are feeling so happy; someone is going to win and win big! Someone is going to lose money too.The ladies are lost in a sea of excitement, the sounds of machines clanging the winning bells and the smells of liquor everywhere. you can get drunk just smelling it!
They are always telling themselves that THIS time they will cash in their chips, have a good meal and maybe go visit the local native residents that work and live around the casino...but then, just one more game, just one more game because they always think they're going to win. Maybe this time will be the big win, so...on more game!
