Hooker déjà vu…?

This happened the weekend after Memorial Day weekend in 2014.

During this trip to Vegas, I had ceased my play for the trip and was just hanging out shooting the breeze, as I am wont to do, with the hotel/casino staff that I have become friendly with over the years.  Feeling some pangs of hunger, I made my way over to Five50 Pizza (yummy) to grab a couple of slices before heading to the airport.  On my way walking there a tall, curvy woman with glasses said hello to me.  Not thinking anything of it, I said hello and went forward on my quest for pizza.  After scarfing down the slices, I wandered around and sat down at a penny slot machine just to pass the time.

Lo and behold, who comes walking by again but the curvy girl in glasses.  She proceeds to say hello again and takes a seat at the slot machine next to mine.  She immediately chats me up (I know where this is going as 99.9% of the women out there are not just sitting down to chat with me).  About 2 minutes into the ‘conversation’, she asks if I am staying at the Aria.  I reply in the affirmative and she then asks if the rooms are nice…can we all see where this is going?  I said “yes, very nice but I’m all checked out already”.  With an answer for everything, she replies “well, I am sure a high roller like you could get access to any room you wanted”.  Well, considering I have $20 in a penny slot machine, I am not sure why she would think I was high roller other than to stroke my ego.

I said, “unfortunately, I don’t have that kind of juice”.  She said, “oh well, we could’ve had a lot of fun touring the room”, stood up to go, winked at me and was gone in a flash.

I arrived home and, fresh off my insane Memorial Day loss, decided to head to AC that weekend to attempt to recoup some of said losses.

So, on that Saturday night, about 11:30pm, I had passed a tall, curvy woman with glasses who I swore I recognized…
We smiled as we passed one another but that was it for the moment
About 20 minutes later I Was talking to a roulette dealer I am friendly with and she happened to walk by again
I stopped her and told her she looked very familiar to me
She looked at me quizzically as a lightbulb went off above my head
I asked her if she happened to be at the Aria in Las Vegas over Memorial Day weekend
She said “Yes, I live in Vegas but I’m here on vacation…are you here alone?”
It all started coming back to me now – so I told her I was indeed alone
She then said, “We should fix that.”
I then laughingly stated, “You know, you used the exact same sales pitch on me in Vegas”
She then leaned in and asked me if I had taken her up on the offer last time
I said “No, I did not’
And she replied, right on cue “Don’t make the same mistake twice”
I laughed and wished her a good evening…

 

Yet another ‘improbable’ story from my life.
