It’s my birthday week and as part of the celebration I joined a group of friends for my inaugural trip to Las Vegas.
To be completely honest, I am underwhelmed. The weather is great and the sites I’ve seen are interesting, but can I say I’m pining to return – NOT!
I guess the fact that I’m not a gambler plays a large role in that decision. Add to that I’m not a member of the “Mile High” club with loads of discretionary cash just waiting to be blown and my initial thoughts of “Sin City” remain.
As I sit in the Casino writing this one observation that amazes me is the number of children spending there vacations in Las Vegas. Not to be totally judgmental, but WHY?! I mean how bored are they and how much fun can the parents have?
Also, who started the rumor that as long as you are playing you are drinking? I haven’t played a lot, but not once has a waitress asked me if I wanted a cocktail! Actually as I sat playing no one appeared but as soon as I got up, a gentleman seated two machines over received a drink! I wondered aloud, “How much do you have to play to get a drink?” His nonverbal response was “nothing,”so my response was “She must like the way you look!”
All in all, a good vacation thanks to a good group of people and some good sights.
