Tonight, I had to take care of dinner for myself. I don’t like making stuff, which is why I prefer restaurants. It’s been a while since I’ve been to Jumbo Buffet. The last time I went, they refused my marked money. I had actually considered keeping large, unmarked bills with me for that purpose.

Before going to dinner, I went to the casino in Hallandale. I left with 25 singles, two marked fives and a marked $20. I was debating whether or not I should spend any of them in the casino. If I spent the singles, I knew that they’d be in circulation, leaving me with a safe bill to spend on dinner. On the other hand, I could put a twenty and a five into a machine, leaving me the marked singles. If I was wrong, I’d have to pay by debit, which is what I had to do.

I figured the safe thing to do was to keep all of the remaining bills. If the waitress refused the marked money again, I could give her the twenty and get change. (It would have been nice to have a fifty or hundred.) It’s been so long, I think that they’ve had enough turnover that few employees would recognize the bills. If the manager’s still there, though, he may have to remind everyone. I have this vision of me going there again and seeing a wanted poster on the wall saying that I’m banned from the place.
