"so there i was, in vegas with a whole week's pay. Soon, i'd had too
many drinks and got my hand smashed by mob goons because i won 12k at
blackjack. They took my money, too, so i wouldnt be welcome at the
sporting houses, which made my damaged hand all the more unfortunate,
because i liked to use both hands, like a big production, with
pinching and teasing. I'd even surprise myself sometimes, lying in
the dark, saying to myself "what's that?" or "that was most
unexpected. More please."
