Today at work, a client comes in wearing a Vegas t-shirt. Naturally as is normally the case, a conversation about Las Vegas breaks out. My colleague says Vegas is a place everyone should once. In my head I'm thinking...ONCE? The client says he's been twice. Immediately I feel redeemed as a Vegas degenerate. Whew! He thinks like me I say silently under my breath. Then the clients says "twice is more than enough". Well! Twice? :Þ At work as I begin this thread I've learned, and come to appreciate and accept, that what we, as VMBers have is very special. Yes, there are many places to travel to and enjoy, and I do. But there's no place like Las Vegas . We attach pet names like Mecca, Lost Wages Sin City and others. We celebrate one another's wins and commiserate together when we lose! We attempt to connect with one another while there through posts, PMs and seek to notice green wrist bands. Are we complete strangers? I don't think so. Whether our Vegas love is golf or gambling, shows or shopping, concerts or Cirque du Soleil, we all share a common bond. It's a Vegas thing and some just don't understand. I'm okay when friends and family say Vegas? Again? In some I sense a tinge of jealousy. In others curiosity even amazement, but never identification. I only get that here, on this board.
