I’m sure that you’ve heard that old saying “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas”
well, thank goodness we were in Stateline.
2 of our nights, last weekend, were spent at the off-road races… We’re friends with a race team who pretty much always comes in first
(that is, unless the driver is on a BMX bike, but even then he still manages to come in first…. that is, if the “race” is between helicopters airlifting people to the hospital) So, after they came in first… again *yawn* we headed down to meet them. As we approached the truck, we passed another truck. Apparently this was a truck of sorrow.
An extremely large man released himself from the truck… I remember thinking “Wow… that’s a BIG ol’ boy” as we walked by.
Real big…. Like 6’4 over 300 pounds… A little larger than you’re used to seeing in most racers.
As we neared our buddy’s truck a heartfelt wail erupted behind us.
It startled me.. but I kept walking
…glancing back momentarily.
Big ol’ Boy was have a Big ol’ meltdown.
Alligator tears and all.
From what we were able to gather from his hysterics, it was over a lost cell phone
NOOOOOOOOO! NOT AGAINNNNNNNNN!!!! NOOOOOOOO!!!!!
…his girl tried to console him
I JUUUUST WANT TO *sob* LOOK FOR THE PHONE!!!! CAN I JUST LOOK FOR THE *hiccup* PHONE!!!!! IT WILL MAKE ME *snot bubble* FEELLLLL BETTER!!!!!!
YOU KNOW WHAT KIND OF MONTH I’VE HAD!!!!
*his month must have been mega-bad*
… his girl is still attempting to console him… his friends are in the back ground trying (not very hard) to hide their laughter
WHYYYYY DOESSSS THIS ALWAYS HAAAAA*hiccup*PPENNNNN TO MEEEEEEE *snort*
and then he wailed…. and flailed…. and thrashed… and cried…. and declared the injustices of this cruel world… loudly
CAN WE JUST GO HOME… I JUST WANT TO GO HOME!!!!!! GOING HOME WILL MAKE ME FEEL BETTER AND I JUST WANT TO GO HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Did I mention that we could clearly hear him over the race trucks…
at this point the girl had given up…. his friends were besides themselves… and he was still crying.
I can’t help but wonder what Big ol’ Boy is up to right now…. has he ordered a new phone? Are his friends teasing him 24/7 about his little outburst? Did his girl leave him for someone with some testosterone?
I guess I’ll never know.
