Good Luck is an Illusion

"Fools wait for a lucky day."
-The Buddha

Is the smile good luck or ridicule? Watching down on the double down. Everyone has a smile when they want something. I thought of this as the midwestern kid in the denim jacket talked to me as I waited for the monorail to take me to somewhere near the Luxor. He was one of those guys with a vacant smile. A smile without joy used as a device. He seemed like an isotope of one of those characters in a Marlboro ad. He seemed unstable enough to give me low grade anxiety about riding uptown with him in the same abandoned train car. Too many $20 margaritas and late night TV shows.
