Morning in Las Vegas

Yesterday, I arrived in Las Vegas and immediately put on my running shoes and shorts and went to the fitness area here at the Stratosphere Hotel, Casino, Erotic Dance Performance Arena (Bitten, Vampire Erotica!), and Bar and Grill, and Buffet.  The fitness area is adjacent the swimming pool and I ran slow (on vacation I wasn’t able to hit it much) and watched an intergenerational, multi-ethnic spring break-style water and alcohol party.  “Look at me,” I thought.  “Instead of boozing and getting sunburned and smoking and falling in the pool, I’m running on a treadmill!  I am so happy!”  And then I thought about it for a moment or two and was a little bit lonely.

This morning however, after eating a delicious meal with members of the Henderson Writers Group, I am awake!  And alive!  And not illin from spring break-style water games!

I’m having a Starbucks in the Casino.

Morning in Las Vegas!

Morning in Las Vegas.  That’s the real color in here.

Meanwhile, Brett Favre ran a lap at training camp for messing up a snap.  Jets fans cheered.  Attendance at the Jets training camp is up exponentially.  I’m on Public Radio in Las Vegas tomorrow to talk about Miracle Letters, but will have a hard time not talking about Favre the whole time.
