I might have told a huge lie to my family to get out of the reunion, then my parents, along with all of their siblings and families, were throwing a huge family reunion, but there would be 200 people there, and I was ordered to attend, i said I couldn’t afford the plane ticket, so my Dad bought me one.
The complication was that I definitely didn’t want to go.
My folks are nice people, although I don’t like most of my extended family, so when I had a layover at the Las Vegas airport, I called my Dad and said the flight was canceled and I couldn’t make it, however what I definitely meant was that I would much rather stay in Las Vegas for a couple of afternoons than attend that reunion; Can you blame me, really? Who wouldn’t rather spend time in the American Mecca called Las Vegas than being interrogated and embarrassed by their family? I didn’t have cash for a hotel, and it should come as no surprise that Las Vegas is not known for its hostels, las Vegas is a site that wants troutists with cash, so there are not several sites that offer affordable lodging, then on the other hand, Las Vegas has a lot of sites that offer affordable cannabis. There are dozens of cannabis shops throughout Las Vegas, and all of them have sweet bargains and specials. I had enough cash for cannabis and beer, so I wandered the streets of Las Vegas for a few hours until I got tired and went back to the airport to take a nap.
