I might have told a immense lie to my family to get out of the reunion… My parents, along with all of their siblings and families, were throwing a immense family reunion; There would be 200 people there, and I was ordered to attend! I said I couldn’t afford the plane ticket, so my Mom purchased me one.
The problem was that I really didn’t want to go.
My folks are good people, but I don’t like most of my extended family, and so when I had a layover at the Las Vegas airport, I called my Mom and said the flight was canceled and I couldn’t make it, and what I really meant was that I would much rather stay in Las Vegas for a couple of afternoons than attend that reunion, however 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, but las Vegas is a arena that wants troutists with cash, so there are not many arenas that offer affordable lodging, on the other hand, Las Vegas has a lot of arenas 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 sleepy and went back to the airport to take a nap.
