I Really Don't Like Being Hot

My bridge friends really get a kick out of this story so I thought I'd share it. A few years ago, Squazz and I went to a casino called The Mohegan Sun with Miss K and her husband Chief. The whole thing is underground, and it is a lot of fun. I'm telling you, fun. We checked in to our respective rooms, and hit the tables. And the bars.

Miss K and Chief

While Squazz and Chief busied themselves at the Blackjack Tables, Miss K and I flitted about the place playing the slot machines and drinking wine. I think at some point, we even stumbled upon some concert, so we stayed there and danced a bit. Then we had a burger and some more wine. Then we went in search of our spouses. Don't you think the plural of spouse should be spice? Anyway, here is where the story gets a little fuzzy.

When we found them, we told them all about our adventure. But they couldn't understand us. Not a word. I think it's because the whole place is underground, and the oxygen levels were messed up. Squazz and Chief think the oxygen was fine, and that there was something wrong with Miss K and me.

So we were sent packing to our rooms to go night-night. Miss K came to my room where we had some more wine because we needed it. Then she went to her room. I got ready for bed, and I realized I was sweating. It was about 90 degrees in there, and I couldn't adjust the thermostat. I called the front desk for help. Somehow, it dawned on me that I really couldn't talk. Squazz and Chief were right. They couldn't understand me at the desk. That oxygen situation was getting worse. "Hruolo esss hawwwrrt." Finally, I just started saying the word hot all drawn out for them. God what was wrong with these people? Eventually they flicked some switch to activate my room settings and I left them alone. More, importantly, my room finally started to cool down. I was long asleep by the time Squazz returned with all his winnings.

Meanwhile, Miss K was sound asleep in her room when Chief returned. She had the only key, so he knocked. No answer. He rang the doorbell. No answer. He went down the hall and called the room from the house phone. No answer. Finally poor Chief had to go down to the desk and get another key. As he was dog-cussing his sleeping wife, and moaning and groaning, the desk people told him not to feel so bad. "You shoulda heard this woman who was hooooot in room 2430."

LMAO -- tooo funny! I hate it when my tongue won't keep up with the booze. Of course, like you, my mind is completely fine - it's the mouth that is a traitor.

Still laughing... hehehe.

Oh - and the bbc dude? I don't think there's any cheering him up. I went to his blog and left a relatively nice comment because the one post I read seemed a little frank, a little rude, but hey, that's his perogative. Then later I went back and read some more and came to realize the guy's about 6 donuts short of a dozen. Now I go back and read through my fingers across my eyes because I'm horrified at what I'll read, but I have to - kind of like watching a scary show. Strange, I know.

Bwhahaha! I have had those moments too. Way too many to admit.

Ditto what brneyedgal967 said. I visited his blog after a mean-spirited comment he left on Kate's blog (chronicles of a country girl) and he seems to be an angry, bitter man. Hates many groups of people. Hates women. Makes you wonder if he was abused by his mom as a kid to have such bitter thoughts.

Ignore him.

Miss K-- I hope so! Only I bet there may be enough oxygen where we're going....Or better cooling system in place!
