As it stands right now, I'm going back to LV the last week of August. I'm actually not too thrilled about it, but I'm doing it for my dad.
Have you ever NOT wanted to go to Vegas? I never knew this feeling was possible.
I had originally intended on taking Dad in December. It will be his first time in Las Vegas and he's really excited. One of the things we both really want to do is the Star Trek Experience. I've done it before and know it's a cheesy thing, but he's a huge nerd and really wants to see it. I know it is going to be the highlight of his trip. Now that they are closing on September 1st, we have to go before then. Can't go this month - that means August or Bust.
You want to know what else he wants to do on this trip? He really wants to go to a Long John Silver's restaurant. Seriously. This is how he wants to spend his Vegas vacation. Fried fish and chips from a drive-thru. We don't have any in our local area but he sees commercials for them on the TV and wants to go. Gimme a break, Dad. But I'll humor him and we'll hit the one out by Sam's Town. It's his trip...not mine. Even though I'm paying for it, he is the guest of honor and we're gonna do whatever he wants to do.
If we were going later in the year I would be more excited. But I was just in LV last month. And I don't like fried fish. I'm concerned about how my dad is going to handle the hot weather. I've been in August before and I know what to expect. I know I can handle it but I don't know if he can handle it. I want to show him all the best that Vegas has to offer, but it's going to be terribly hot to wander around on the Strip and play the tourist.
Ugh. Can anyone sympathize? I know it sounds like "Oh poor me. I HAVE to go to Vegas. Boo hoo!" But if I'm being honest here...I don't want to go.
