Vegas Baby

Welcome to the 6th floor.

Today's contributors are: Ann, Billy and Scott.

Subject: Vegas Baby

Ann hangs up the phone, looking over to Billy and Scott with a rather bewildered expression.


My parents aren't doing Thanksgiving. Their friends decided to go to Las Vegas last minute, and they invited my parents.”


Woah, Thanksgiving in Vegas. Interesting.”


I can't believe they're going to Vegas. My mother won't even play instant lotto.”


Well Vegas is special. Besides, with all the Broadway show strikes, the best shot at getting a ticket is going to Vegas.”


Ann laughs, “That's true. My mother said she really wasn't looking forward to cooking anyway. They're going to go to buffets every night and have a grand Thanksgiving without me.”


And get some quality alone time. Who knows, you could have another sibling in 9 months.”


Ann groans. “Scott! I don't need to hear about that.”


You're right. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Does that mean the kid would have to be given away to Nevada?”


Maybe. Forever an orphan growing up in a casino, learning the games, eventually falling in with the wrong crowd.”


Until one day he decides to get even and stages an elaborate con on the casino bosses, taking it for millions of dollars.”


And as the police are tracking him down, he unexpectedly finds his birth mother who helps him avoid the cops and they form a new bond of friendship.”


Brilliant! Alert Spielberg! We've got his next movie!”


Ummm...sure. I'll get right on that. But first I'm going to try and find Tabitha. Since we're all apparently going to be here for Thanksgiving, we should do it right. Turkey, Pie, Cranberry sauce..”


Pumpkin pie!”


A real Thanksgiving meal! This beats Frank's offer to buy everyone turkey cold cuts and a can of pumpkin filling.”
