The Trip to Las Vegas

The Trip to Las Vegas
The Trip to Las Vegas

A few weeks before we left, my husband came home from work and told me he was bringing one of his friends with us.  To be honest, I was excited about it.  This friend was a fun person.  He would take an ordinary night out and make it extra fun.  I thought he would add to our experience, not take away.

We arrived in Las Vegas after midnight.  I was so excited.  After check-in, we left the room to go get something to eat.  While eating, my husband’s friend tells us about an app he has that will allow him to find a prostitute in ANY city.  He said he hires them all the time, even while he is at work.  He proceeds to shop the app, find one, and bring her back to our room.  Now at this point, I was TIRED.  Very tired.  But I couldn’t go to the room because there was a HOOKER in our room!!  My husband and I began to play on the slot machines.  After an hour, he left me to go to the room to see what was going on.  He comes back and he is visibly frustrated.  He’s on edge and begins to yell.  He tells me how he went to the room and his friend and hooker were doing drugs.  In OUR room!  I wasn’t happy.  My husband continues to yell and I begin to cry.  This is not how this is supposed to go.  We should be laughing right now.  We should be excited to be away from the kids.  We should be having fun.  Instead, my husband is yelling, I am crying, and there is a stranger in my room doing drugs.

My husband leaves, again, and I begin to walk around to find one of my friends who was also on the trip.  In doing so, I tripped on the escalator and tore a chunk out of my big toe.  Now I began to bawl.  I went to the bathroom, inspected my bleeding toe, and cried harder.  I left the bathroom to try and find my friend or husband.  Once I found him, he begins to apologize after he sees how upset I am.  He said he was sorry for acting so angry.  He said if it wasn’t for him getting so mad, I probably wouldn’t have hurt my toe.  He calmed down.  He gave me a hug and began to I calm down.  I began to think this trip might be ok after all…
