On Thursday, school kids in Las Vegas celebrated their first snow day since 1979. On the famous strip, the 3.6 inches of snow coated the flashing marquees and weighted down palm trees. Even though the residents had fun throwing snowballs, the tourists from other parts of the world hoping to escape cold, wintry weather were pretty disappointed.
And understandably so. What they wanted was sunshine and continuous poolside daquiris. What they got was guys impersonating fat Elvis who were actually happy to be wearing the heavy white jumpers actually having to the split pea soup in the 4.99 buffet.
Instead of sheer disappointment, perhaps what these tourists should have done–and what we should all remember–is to look for the novelty and fun in a situation that seems like a total inconvenience.
Ducklings crossing in your path slowing down your commute? Impromptu barbershop quartet performance in the airport? It’s easy to brush things off or roll your eyes when you have a set schedule or a certain idea of how you want things to turn out, especially when we are working or are on a mission. But perhaps taking that call from the goofy-but-sometimes-talks-too-long client might give you a new idea or a new direction in your work.Vegas Baby! Friday Weatherstripping Edition by PRGUY222
