Joanne loved playing poker with her friends.

They played for dimes but it was the side bets that made it all worth it. These were private wagers of some consequence, the details of which were only known to the parties involved.

Dares really.

Already she’d bought heroin at midnight in a very “badâ€? neighborhood. She’d had Sheila sell some unwashed panties on eBay. Marcia had been made to confront her husband’s mistress. She convinced the girl to steal from him. They were all going to Vegas on the proceeds.

Joanne worried that she would back out on the carjacking though.
