I also have dozens of vignettes on CreativeCopyChallenge.com

Basically, he makes some stupid plays at the Blackjack table. LOL

Thanks, dreamthief. I agree the second is dark, but the first was supposed to be a final happy epiphany. :)

Thanks, lazarus. I tried to convey death from three perspectives.
