Ole Muddy - My Saturday Centus for this week

Ole Muddy - My Saturday Centus for this week


I stuff my clothes and toiletries into my fake LV duffle. Then I walk into the bathroom and face myself in the mirror.

“You stupid mule,” I say to myself. “You’re donkey of a person. Now it’s all gone, all those hard earned dollars down the drain in a casino in Vicksburg.”

I walked in here with my dignity intact and enough money to have a little fun. Now, I’m outta here - and broke.

I check out, throw my bag into the back seat of my T-Bird and I look back over my shoulder, squinting into the late afternoon sun, gawking with stunned alarm at the broad rolling muddy waters of the Mississippi, flipping it the finger and driving east, hoping the casino will flood.
