One of my favorite bloggers was taken aback when he noticed the striking girl in the wheelchair playing PaiGow at a table next to us. His eyes lit up as he perked up in his seat and took a large gulp of his drink.
"Wheelchair sex. Now that's something I'd like to try," he stammered.
The evening had been spent in an epic Dostoevskyish whirlwind tour of -EV table games, culminating in my finally popping my cherry at Paigow.
The wheelchair girl had full use of her arms, which excited our blogger friend. Like me, she could barely see above the table, although the casino was always happy to let me sit on a phone book to overcome my height deficiencies.
Our blogger hero began ordering double shots in an effort to gather courage to talk to the wheelchair girl. She was fashionably dressed and seemed approachable, but how? Perhaps some stones are best left unturned.
Many drunken hours later, I returned from a restroom break, only to see our blogger friend kneeling next to the girl, chatting amiably. I was fortunate enough to overhear this line:
"I know this great little Italian place with a ramp. Interested?"
Suffice to say, I have a jillion snippets from this trip ala this one but no talent to write them up. Guess you had to be there.
Thankfully, most everyone who attended aren't as lame as me, so here's plenty of Trip Reports from Vegas for your reading pleasure. If I missed anyone, please email me.
Stolen link list from Maudie. I haven't had time to read many yet, but two of my faves thus far are Derek's and Dawn's 3-parter.
And please, for the love of God, go read Grubby's announcement: Leaving Las Vegas.
