Punked in Vegas

Yippee! I find myself in Las Vegas and it's, as it always seems to be, awesome. Our host/client/friend down here is a well-connected fella (as well as generous to beat the band) and has lined up night after night of shows for us to see. Last night, it was Tournament of Kings at Excalibur*.

The show was pretty rad—eating food with your hands, horses and jousting, and lots of awesome pyrotechnics. The extra addition to the night, however, was the mighty prank he played on us.
  • He told Merlin, who was working the crowd before hand, lots about us who then played it all off as magic. Minor. Pretty amusing in fact.
  • We got called out as the "these guys aren't cheering properly so now they have to do the cheer in front of all 600 people alone". Embarassing*, but not really that bad.
  • Before the show, when the announcer is calling out all the birthdays, anniversaries, etc., a special congratulations to the newlyweds was included. For the rest of the evening, people were coming up to congratulate us.*. This got us good. Our faces were red but at that point, we just had to roll with it.
Yep, it was a great night. After the show, we strolled the Strip in the perfect weather and took it all in. I like Vegas and look forward to a fun rest of my visit!!

Wait a minute " a special congratulations to the newlyweds" and "people were coming up to congratulate us." Is there something I'm missing here? Come on, be honest.

@Ma: Did you miss the "epic prank" part? No need to worry. The wedding chapels of Las Vegas got no business from any son of yours.
