I spent late Saturday and early morning Sunday in Las Vegas (which I highly recommend- particularly if you are able to find a high roller looking for a 'companion' for the evening). At one point in the evening, a flight attendant friend of mine named Christina received a phone call from her friend Travis, who was calling her from jail to say that he was arrested for his third DUI. She got very upset and asked where she could wire money from her savings and then asks, "What does this mean for it to be your third DUI?" His reply was that it meant it was April Fool's Day.

My instinctive reaction was that this was a particularly cruel April Fool's joke akin to making up a divorce or death. On second reflection, however, I concluded that whosoever is clever enough to warrant two DUIs in the first place is most decidedly and without question the Fool, in April and every other month of the year.

Did you find a "companion" for the evening while you were in Vegas? Hello! Here's to hoping Shannon goes into labor soon.

I went with a fellow flight attendant but yes, there was a gentleman that evening. Shannon was displeased (to say the least) with this post, innocuous as it is. I am now making more of an effort to not induce labor or heart attacks by scandalizing her so.
