  KAREN: I’m not comfortable about this, Sandy.I don’t understand most of these games.

  SANDY: That’s okay. I can explain a little.

  KAREN: I don’t want to lose all my money.

  SANDY: Don’t worry. You can’t lose all your money.because you won’t gamble all your money.

  KAREN: I guess you’re right.

  SANDY: Of course I’m right. I already told you the rule for Las Vegas. Remember?

  KAREN: Yes, I remember.You must decide how much money you will gamble before you start to play.

  SANDY: That’s right. That’s the best way to have control over yourself.You say to yourself. "Tonight I will gamble fifty dollars. Only fifty dollars. No more."If you follow the rule, you can’t lose more than fifty dollars.

  KAREN: I know it’s true, Sandy. But still some people lose control.They start to gamble, and they can’t stop.

  SANDY: But I won’t let you do that. I will watch you.

  KAREN: Okay.

  SANDY: So how much do you want to gamble?

  KAREN: Maybe 500 dollars.

  SANDY: 500 dollars! That’s too much!You just said you are afraid to lose your money.If you’re afraid, why do you want to gamble 500 dollars?

  KAREN: I don’t want people to think I’m stingy.

  SANDY: That is a bad attitude to have, Karen!If you think that way, Las Vegas will be really dangerous for you.

  KAREN: So how much should I gamble?

  SANDY: Why not fifty or one-hundred dollars?

  KAREN: Okay. One-hundred then. Do you think I will lose it?

  SANDY: I don’t know. You have to be smart, but you have to be lucky too.Some games are all luck. With some, you need to be smart.

  KAREN: I want games that are all luck.

  SANDY: I knew you would say that! Then you should play the slot machines.

  KAREN: Slot machines? No, I don’t want that! That’s too boring.I want a game with cards or dice.

  SANDY: So what do you want to play then?

  KAREN: Blackjack.We can play blackjack. And I will gamble one-hundred, or maybe two-hundred dollars.

  SANDY: Huh? You are breaking our rule already! And we didn’t even start to play yet!

  KAREN: Oh, don’t be so strict! We are in Las Vegas.

  SANDY: Yes, and if I stay with you, we will have to walk back home to New York.Because we will lose all our money and our plane tickets too!

  凯伦:我在这里很不自在,仙蒂。大部分的游戏我都不懂。

  仙蒂:没关系,我会一点。

  凯伦:我不想输光所有的钱。

  仙蒂:别担心,你不会一文不剩的因为你不能把所有的钱都拿来赌。

  凯伦:你说得对。

  仙蒂:那当然。我告诉过你来拉斯维加斯的原则,记得吗?

  凯伦:记得。在你开始玩之前,先决定要花多少钱来赌。

  仙蒂:没错,这是控制自己最好的方法。你告诉自己今天晚上我只赌 50 美元,就是 50 美元,不能超过。如果你遵守,就不会输掉超过 50 美元。

  凯伦:没错。不过有些人还是不能控制。他们一开始赌博就停不下来了。

  仙蒂:我不会让你这么做的,我会看着你。

  凯伦:好的。

  仙蒂:你要花多少钱赌博?

  凯伦:大概 500 美元。

  仙蒂:500 美元?太多了!你刚刚不是还说怕输光吗,那为什么要赌 500 美元?

  凯伦:我不想让人觉得我很小气。

  仙蒂:那是错误的心态。如果你那样想,拉斯维加斯对你而言是极危险的。

  凯伦:那么我应该花多少钱呢?

  仙蒂:50 或 100 美元如何?

  凯伦:那么 100 美元好了,我会输光吗?

  仙蒂:我不知道。你必须用脑,还要靠点运气。有些游戏是全靠运气,有一些则必须用点大脑。

  凯伦:我想玩靠运气的。

  仙蒂:我就知道你会这么说,那么你该玩玩吃角子老虎。

  凯伦:吃角子老虎?我不想玩那个,太无聊了。我想玩扑克牌或是骰子。

  仙蒂:那么你想玩什么游戏?

  凯伦:21 点。我们玩 21 点,玩个 100 或 200 美元。

  仙蒂:什么?你开始破坏规则了,我们都还没开始玩呢!

  凯伦:别太严格嘛,我们是在赌城耶。

  仙蒂:是啊!如果我和你在一起,我们就要走路回纽约了!因为我们会输个精光,连机票也没了。
