I went to the casino this weekend and I saw a woman do this little ritual I thought I would blog about. I was sitting at the end machine on a row and she was sitting at the end machine diagonally up from me and on my right. She would lean over toward the machine and looked to be praying. She would then put her hands around the machine in a sort of hug while rubbing the sides of it. She saw me looking at her and she sort of stopped for a moment but then resumed the behavior a little later. I just thought that was funny.
