DJ Whitey


First of all, I really hate doing two posts in one day.  Really.  But sometimes I have so much fun stuff to share, I just can't help myself.  And Black Hawk was pretty fun.

We surprised Pat's sister Jessica last night for her birthday.  It was Pat and I, his mom, his dad, Jessica's boyfriend (who orchestrated the whole shindig) and some of her friends.  She thought she was just up there with her boyfriend.  Ha!  Happy birthday Jessica!

Can I tell you the best thing about this trip to Black Hawk?  I'm getting married in four-ish months.  The wedding has been on a serious back burner situation dealing with some other emergencies in the mean time.  It's kind of been freaking me out. 

But spending some time this weekend with my future family was just sensational. I am so lucky to be adding so many wonderful people to people I can call my family.  

Pat's mom drove with Pat and I up to Black Hawk and we took the back roads which were GORGEOUS.  Then, we had the big surprise moment with Pat's sister once there.  

After "SURPRISE!" Pat, his mom and I went out to dinner.  Then, Pat, his sister and all the others were into going to the tables.  Pat's mom and I prefer the slots.  

The selection process for Pat's mom is simple--find something cute.  She was so funny finding the games with the cute little animals.  And you know what?  I watched her win $200 with a $10!  It was the most she ever won.  We were all stoked.  

After a bit, we decided to go back to our room for a bit--Pat's mom and I.  Truth be told, we were in search of a good non-casino watered down cocktail.  Well, we were staying in Central City, which is a city about a mile away from Black Hawk.  There is a shuttle bus that comes from casino to casino and Central City to Black Hawk.  

Well, our bus driver, who we became quite familiar with after riding on the shuttle at least half a dozen times throughout the evening, introduced himself to us as DJ Whitey.  DJ Whitey introduced us to the Party Bus.  And told us that the women were free to use the pole to his left for dancing, should we choose to.  Aw, Colorado.  We gots class. 

At any rate, there was one particularly rowdy couple, probably in their 50's, which were hilarious and loud.  The woman started talking about how she couldn't dance because she didn't have heels on.  In fact, she announced, no one in her group had heels on . . . "but she got some heels on!" she said pointing at my feet.  I was wearing these booties, bythedubbs.   Then the whole group started ooohing and aaahing.  Pat's mom turned to me and said that was so cool.  And she proceeded to joke about me pole dancing the rest of the night.  It was freaking funny. 

Also, DJ Whitey liked to play disco music.  And Pat's mom and I may or may not have gotten down on some Mr. Big Stuff.  Completely without shame.  

 Oh the fun didn't end there.  Pat's mom and I were laughing and having so much fun until wee hours in the morning.  Whoever thinks that older women can't hang, is seriously underestimating the situation.  Fab.  U.  Lous. 

And though I came home with only $40 (which I didn't win, I had just managed not to gamble away) and though my wedding is coming up quicker than I can even comprehend, I took great gratitude and solace in the fact that even if the wedding isn't perfect, I knew that the people I would spend the rest of my life with, were.
