After Vegas, Andy wondered. He used his winnings from his first trip and bought a plane ticket a couple of months later. He stuck to the blackjack tables, didn't drink too much, played in exactly the way the internet said to play to win and lost a thousand dollars. 

That night he laid on his hotel bed and pondered the circumstances of his previous winning day those months prior. He considered going on a late night walk, getting lost on purpose, and trying to find someone to stab him. He fell asleep instead.

The next morning as he walked out of the elevators he whispered, "I need to win today."

He won ten grand again that day. And it started to click.

Andy flew home later that night. He bought an upgrade to business class. He pulled out a small notepad and pen from his backpack and began to write.

1. Don't go to the same casino twice.
2. Don't go more than once a month.
3. Go to other places besides Vegas.
4. Don't tell anyone.
5. Save the money.
6. Move into my own place.
7. Test with other things.

"I need a drink," he thought out loud. A few minutes later the airline stewardess came up to him and informed him that he was the recipient of a free drink coupon.

      @danielmiller @gabrielgreco - Haha this exchange. :)

      I liked the same part... "He considered going on a late night walk, getting lost on purpose, and trying to find someone to stab him."

      This is some good fiction. Why do I always feel like I am reading non-fiction particularly when it is?
