Tomorrow I leave for Vegas.
I've been there a few times. Mostly a drive through while on one of my famous road trips. A day or two by the pools. Drinks delivered to you while you watch your kids frolic. Nothing like it. I'm a tad older now. Going to the pool by myself this time. Kids are grown up and not going. I saw in the news that the MGM was opening their celebrity party pool. I had to look that up. Yes, they do have a party pool. I quickly looked to see if they had a normal pool. They do but does the hotel I'm staying at? So, I looked it up. The Wynn has a gallery that shows bikinis & young 25 year old's with cute drinks in their hands. I'm going to ask at check in ... do you have a pool for 52 year old slightly over weight young at heart ladies who just want to sit in the warm of the yellow stuff and read her book. A pool where it doesn't matter if my cellulite is as white as a beluga ... and let's not mention my resemblance to the beluga ... I just want to relax by a pool with a drink & not be surrounded by silly 25 year old's. I hope I didn't go to the wrong place. And you may ask ... why am I going ... my nerdly husband is going to a nerdly convention & asked if I wanted to get away for a few days. He asked during a snow storm and I said yes. I didn't just say it. I yelled it in a high pitched voice. The kind where you wonder where did that come from. So, as I venture into my closest to pull out my warm clothes, I ponder what I should bring. As we are having an especially cold Winter ... it's Spring isn't it ... I haven't worn anything but sweats. Oh and let's not forget my extraness that I gave myself this year. Today I will be packing. Trying on possible outfits. I really just want to be a 52 year old lady enjoying herself in Vegas but I think I'm staying at the wrong hotel ... don't you ? I'll let you know how it went ... I'll even take a few pics ... could be I'll have lots of time on my hands ... if the going to the pool doesn't work out. So cross your fingers and your paws that they do have a special pool for old ladies like me.
