The funniest story would have to be about my mom and I and our first trip to Las Vegas. It was 1987 and we flew to Las Vegas on a Thursday afternoon (we hardly got any sleep the night before). We were awe struck by Vegas and threw our luggage in the room and off to the casino we went.
At first when we started playing the slot machines, we didn't find it too thrilling. But, we agreed since we were there we decided to make the best of it. Heh...the slot machines became a lot of fun...
During this time we....
Kept getting lost in the casino. We stayed at the Sands (may it RIP).
Got tipsy on a few occasions.
When the poker machine said "Game Over", we said "It ain't over til I say it's over" at least 100 times.
Sat at the machines until we felt like our bladders would burst, then make a bee line for the restroom.
Kept losing our money (no, not in the machines). We placed our gambling money in our bras and would always check the wrong side. For a few seconds there was panic.
One of us would be tired while the other was ready to rock and roll...thus causing one of us to drag the other around.
Mom jumping up in bed one night yelling "Jackpot!" when someone was using the ice machine down the hall.
Me hitting a jackpot on the nickel slots. I won 2000 nickels and they came flying out of the machine bouncing off me, my mom, my chair, the carpet and ricocheting off the people standing in line to get to the buffet. (in the old days, money actually came out instead of a ticket)
Laughed so hard at Denny's, the manager was concerned and checked on us.
After about six hours of sleep in four days, we arrived home. We were exhausted, bruised and our ankles were swollen...but, boy did we have a great time!
