Wait a minute... you're memory is a little off here, Ms. deV... That wasn't me in an "I Love Vegas" t-shirt and dockers... nope... I don't wear dockers... I was the one in blue jeans and boots... until I took the boots off and stashed 'em in my backpack and went barefoot. I had a tank top on with a really cool illustration of a wizard on it on the front and underneath the wizard, it said, "Sturgis or Bust" and on the back it said, "I'm Lost. Please Take Me Home!"
Anyway, just wanted to set the record straight. I didn't really like Vegas too much, especially when Wayne Newton kept staring at me and all that (that WAS Wayne Newton, wasn't it? Or is he dead? Well, what's the difference)... God, is he weird, or what?
When you guys weren't looking, I snuck out of the poetpeople group and walked around town a bit until I found a really cool club with a blues band and a couple of pool tables... and guess who was sitting there just waiting to play a game of pool with me?
Yep. It was Balladeer! Let me tell you, I was VERY surprised to see him without his laptop and with his cue chalked and all just waiting for me... but he didn't seemed surprised in the least to see me! "Hey, Doreen!" he shouted, then casually walked up to the table and said, "7 ball. Side pocket."
Well, anyway, he bought me a drink and we listened to the band and shot a couple of games... the band was fabulous! I think they were called something like Big Mama Colon and the Bluesboys....
This big bouncer didn't seem to care for the fact that I was barefoot, though, and asked us to leave. We just laughed and I put my boots back on and we shot another game of pool... this time, I had a really hard shot and couldn't reach it very well with the stick... oh never mind... long pool story...
Funny thing is, Balladeer didn't even know any of you guys were in town and when I told him, he didn't seem to care at all... so, we're gonna be hanging out here for a few days and we'll catch up to you later, k? Keep that RV going strong and make sure none of the guys put their kilts back on...
That kilt thing was embarrassing, y'know?
Seeya in Sturgis... unless I take another DETOUR... which, given my current state of mind is a very good possibility.
