I met my first Texans and they were full of questions about my homeland. Was is really true that our government made everyone give up their guns? So is it really true then that you need a license to get one? What do you mean the licenses aren't for handguns like the one I keep in my purse? (she didn't have it in her purse when I met her, she wasn't allowed to fly with it so had to leave it at home in Forth Worth, I think it made her quite nervous to be without it, her husband was an even bigger enthusiast, he trains people to use handguns as part of his work) They were also really curious and a bit scared of all our "death vipers" and "killer spiders". Once I assured them that they didn't hang out in our major cities or beaches they seemed more open to the idea of visiting our fair land. They were really nice and really funny.
I then met a man crossing the street on his way back from Hooters who had me in fits of giggles though it wasn't really his intention. He was on his way home for a bit of a lie down as he was feeling a little overstimulated and needed a bit of break before he headed back to Hooters tonight. I told him I thought that was a very wise decision, didn't want him to hurt himself :)
I appreciated where he was coming from later that day as I became overstimulated myself but not as a result of hanging out at Hooters.
My overstimulation came from something much more wholesome and joyous ...
The Rat Pack is Back show at the Rio!
It was amazing, incredible, wonderful, fantastic, brilliant, funny, clever ... you name it it had it, it was sooooo good, so very much my camp cup of tea and had me grinning from ear to ear the whole way through (Karen, Craig and Mum, it was as much fun as Burt Bacharach and Doris Day!). While Deano was signing my photo after the show I told him he was gorgeous to which he replied "you're alright yourself" ahhhh now that's amore! Be still my beating heart. I really was born too late in life, imagine being around when the original crew were in town! Now I'll never get to sleep, but when I finally do I'll be dreaming of Deano ;)
