Luck be a lady (well, maybe not an actual "lady" but more like a harlot, a super easy, sure thing harlot) tonight

Historically, I am a very lucky person. Right place, right time seems to be a recurring theme. And it is a theme I truly appreciate. And love.

And while I think I am very lucky, this is lucky:

JMac's best friend, Hendo, went to Vegas. He had a standard room at The Hard Rock Hotel. Upon arrival, The Hard Rock Hotel informs Hendo there has been some errorts and there is no room available.As in: No sir, there is not a room available, we are overbooked. Hendo is a formidable man. 6'5 and and a Sales Director. He is personable. He is hilarious.  His case further strengthened his real name is not Hendo. The sorry, no room available soon turned into well, we do have a suite available. A suite? Yes, the Hugh Hefner suite. Two stories and requiring that all temporary tenants sign a waiver. A waiver? Hopefully not against contracting an STD but I didn't ask. But a two story suite? Comped? Now that is luck. 

However, my own lucky recently revisited in the following way: One recent weekend in Florida, at one of our favorite resorts, I am lounging on a chair reading while JMac and MiniMac play in the pool. I discover I have lost one of my diamond earrings. Disheartened to say the least, I do not even know where to begin to find it. I furrow my brow but this clearly produces no luck. HOURS later, as it is my turn to tag in and play with MiniMac in the pool, I step on something. My diamond earring. I stepped on my diamond earring in a giant pool filled with people. HALLELUJAH!  Later, I found the back of the earring in a separate location. More hallelujah. Even our friends sitting next to us could not believe that find. "Go buy a lottery ticket," said one friend.  "I just might," I replied. 

Why is this relevant? Well, JMac and I depart on a plane to the City of Sin also known as Las Vegas in a few hours. An adults-only trip which includes one set of Grandparents taking MiniMac for a long, long weekend. 

Our weekend: sinful, cocktails, sinful cocktails, gorgeous dinners including Carnevina, Strata, and Jean-Georges Steakhouse at Aria. We are seeing Rod Stewart. And we have a fabulous suite at Wynn. Oh, and hopefully we will work in some sleep. (I talk big but I like to go to bed at 10:30. I have to get my strong on.)

MiniMac's weekend: Filled with delight to be at the grandparents.

The Grandparents weekend: Filled with love. And exhaustion. 

AND hopefully during our visit to The Meadows, luck will enter if we save her a seat. And I don't mean luck be a lady, I mean Luck, I hope you are a harlot, a super easy sure thing harlot. That certainly sounds like more fun than toting a rabbit's foot around.

Have a gorgeous weekend. See you Tuesday.

Hope luck does find you there.

I aint particularly lucky. I did win a free AC inspection and 1 year service contract one time. Of course they found it installed wrong and $350 later I was set to go. Luck can be a Bee-otch at times too.

Can you send luck my address? I've got a room she can even sleep in.

..Or, think you could try and find my diamond earring I lost while in India?? ;)

Anywho, enjoy Vegas! It's not my list of "things to do"

I love to travel and I love gambling so Vegas is on my list. Now I live in a state where it's not even legal. But they do have a cruise ship that sails out into the ocean so you can gamble. That's on my sooner rather than later list. Good for you. That's great you found that earring too.

Grandparents who'd keep the kid for a weekend would be luck enough for me, but you enjoy your damn self.

That explains it. I'm going through a guy dry spell because my luck is not harlotty enough. And she needs to be harlotty!

Hope you brought your woolies. We've cooked up a cold, rainy weekend here for you. But it sounds like everything you've got planned is indoors, so you should be fine. I wish I could meet you somewhere! One of these days...
